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.
