Do you have Lego-maniacs in your home? I have three.
|Both drawers are full of Legos ...|
The children have been building a sprawling ranch home with vehicles, bedrooms, and parlors. They've had more fun building it than playing with it.
Lego tops have been another huge hit here. My nephew introduced them to the concept and they have been building, spinning, and battling tops. Figuring out the right shapes (rectangles don't work well, as you might imagine), balance, and weight to spin and/or destroy one's enemies.
M-girl is 9 and old enough to participate on a First Lego League team this year. It is a group of homeschool friends from church and Jason is helping with the programming portion. N-boy is really, really interested in M-girl's work and wants to help so badly. He has to wait until next year.
I love that Legos are such a part of their every day lives. They build. They follow directions (once, anyway). They use their imaginations.
