I was only saying to The Mr earlier today that through Lego I am beginning to see a creative ability in my son that I don't think my Daughter or I have. He is able to take pieces of Lego from sets and use them in other than their preconceived intended way to create an entirely different object!
I love seeing what he makes and creativity beyond my personally known realms!
Sometime shortly after this conversation I heard one of the children ask if there was Mario Lego so I googled it ( I'm so very dependant on Google ) and we went to images to see some amazing 3D Mario characters being built from Lego!
The kids went back to the floor and started collaborating and constructing
Before we knew it these guys were built.
