We go through Lego building spurts here. Almost all Lego building happens during rest time or sometimes when Anna wakes up early in the morning. It’s always enjoyable to walk into her room and see her latest creations. Lately she transitioned from just randomly putting a few pieces together to purposefully building something. She builds a lot of beds, tables and shelves, since she loves to play house, but the other day she surprised us with this “geese family” – they look more like robots to me, but she says they are geese. Sometimes she takes their wings away explaining that they are “too young for wings”, and she is very proud of them.

Yesterday she was building again during her rest time – the very symmetrical thing on the background looks like a Transformer to me, but Anna informed us that this is a “fun house with lots of things for kids to play”. She is holding “a remote control for games on TV like you guys have”, and she also built some “stairs”– it fascinates her that putting blocks together in a certain way will form steps.

It always excites me to see her create things. My husband is an amazing Lego builder, and I am glad to see that she is not intimidated by the things he makes for her, and she rather tries to build her own things. She is always very happy when we admire her creations. I hope that she will continue to tinker with Lego and other construction sets to unwind and relax for years to come.

Come and play at Childhood 101.

Those are some very impressive DUPLO creations! I love it when my kids build with lego bricks also.

It's great that she is not intimidated. I love Legos.

"You're too young for wings," that is awesome.

I always disappointed that my sister discouraged her son from really playing with Legos too much. That is such a shame because there are so many amazing things you can do with Legos. Oh well, it's not my child, and I don't have to do what she does (thank goodness).

I love the geese, and the fact that some were too young for wings.

She did a great job with them!! We have a big box of legos (he won't touch the big duplo ones anymore, I don't know why). But he mostly just orders us to build things for him at this point. Anna's work is very impressive :)

I really do need to get some more blocks. They don't come out too often, but when they do, there is just not enough there to buil anything.

I love the goose family. I would have thought they were robots too, and then I would have been in big trouble! LOL

Those geese are so creative. Lego is an awesome toy.

Her creations and the imagination behind them is amazing!

Legos have been a favorite in our home since Hanna was a toddler. Hanna and Joe (and Jack is beginning now) have such creativity using them just like Anna. Now me, that's another story:-).

I think Legos are one of the best toys around for so, so many skills, and they are fun!

I just love that resources like lego allow us such insight into how their young minds work. So much thought and creativity here :)
