Lego Fun

I had some time on my hands last night so I spent some time perusing Pinterest...the best time waster filler out there. Since I was working on school plans, kind of, I thought I should spend some time checking out what the search "education" might bring up as well as looking at what other homeschooling moms boards might hold for treasures.

I came across a website called LEGO Quest Kids. It's a couple years old, but still relevant. The creator challenged kids every week for a year to build various LEGO creations. Each week a new challenge would be listed and then photos submitted of the finished products.

I had planned to have the boys do one each week over the year. Well, they had other ideas. Today alone they have completed three. I'm going to try to make them last longer than a day, but I may not be successful.

Quest #1: Create a Car

Quest #2: Monochromatic 

A yellow version of the Empire State Building

A white repulsor craft
Quest #3: Vessel

J's coffee mug

N's air ship

They are having a lot of fun with it. Best "stumble" I've had in a long while.

Oh thank goodness! I'm not here all alone. Thanks for leaving me a comment. It helps that I'm not always talking to myself. Right? Hello?
