We play – Christmas Lego
Christmas-themed Lego building has come up a couple of times lately. First, Marita suggested building a Lego Christmas tree as an advent calendar activity and Ramona from Learning Activities created a nativity scene with Lego. This week we tried some Christmas Lego building of our own.
B is very much into following directions when building with Lego. I’m not sure if this is because our collection of blocks is small or if he lacks confidence with putting Lego together. He doesn’t have any trouble inventing things when building with other materials. [And does anyone else find it annoying that it is really easy to get themed kits of Lego for building one item but difficult to get kits of useful pieces to complement basic building blocks].
To encourage B to try building his own ideas with Lego, I suggested we work together to build some Christmas symbols. As you can see we built a Christmas tree, a Santa hat and a candle.
