Cool Crafting Ideas with Lego's
Well world once again it has happened. I was staring at the computer screen and my brain was blank. When from the other room my youngest son calls out with a question about a book he is reading. I go in to look and answer his question. When all of a sudden the lights go on for me. Yes the question he had was on this book that I am now sharing with you. Like his brother and his dad Lego's are a big part of fun. And now they are a way to share with you. The question you are wondering - was about a Lego piece that I was able to help him find.
Lego in Latin means – I put together
How did these books find there way into our home?
The obvious answer from Amazon. Bu that is not the starting point here. No my son and I were getting out of the house so that the wife could sleep in. There is a used book store in the next town over that has a great kids section. If I am looking for a used book this is the first place I check. Yes he did find a couple that I was looking for. At the time he did not have it but he is on the look out for me. The next stop was the library which was my main stop with my son. I was looking for another book to do a review on. The Birthday Bird and Dr. Seuss bring a Great "Happy Birthday To You!" It was at this library that my son started looking for books on building robots. One of the librarians took him directly to this section. And in there were these Lego books. The hard part was trying to take my son away from books. We had other stops to make and the last thing any parent wants to do is stop their child from reading. We checked out these books and he was reading one of them on the way to the car and all the way home. I even took him out for lunch and he became disappointed when I would not let him bring a book in with us.
When we got home he pulled out a large bag of Lego's and started building. I am not sure if he finished any of the different projects. but the fact he had all three books open and the Lego's laid out on the floor says a lot about how interested he was in these books. Also what he could create with them. This took hours to complete. And that is without the TV on. So as you can see sometimes a good book is not just for reading. Sometimes a good book can help you play and think about what you can build if you just take the time and just Lego of what is stopping you.

When it comes to building with Lego's the only thing that can slow you down is your own imagination.
