What’s really cool about LEGOs is that you can put a bunch of bricks on the table, and everybody will make something different. Everyone has different ideas, and some of them may seem crazy. Christopher Miller, Writer of The Lego Movie
This week I took two grandchildren, August, 10, and Marcella, 5, to our local Legoland. It was a fun morning of observing amazing cities, animals, Star Wars characters and more all made from tiny, plastic Legos bricks. In addition, there was a Lego movie, a couple of rides and lots of opportunities to build with Legos. So, what did I learn in this haven for kiddies?
- Amazing creative things can be made from tiny pieces of plastic.
- Kids who are compete strangers can find joy in building a Duplo wall together.
- Very happy, creative adults with engineering and IT skills galore can get paid for conceptualizing and building super cool things out of Legos
- You have to know a bit about building with Legos to create a workable car with wheels (this grandma was woefully unqualified) but I learned you get extra credit for riding on a kiddie ride.
- Well raised kids express gratitude.
- I day of fun ages a person backwards.
Affirmation: I know how to have fun.
Coaching questions: What do you do for fun? What brings out the kid in you? What does being child-like do for you?
