Saturday Snapshot- Legos!

One of the Groupons I bought this summer was for Open Play at Bricks for Kids.  During Open Play children can use any of the Legos to build and create.  They have a large raised bin, as well as sets with and without motors and larger Legos for little hands.

It is hard to tell here, but my daughter followed the directions to build a kangaroo.

My middle son spent a lot of time making the ghosts from Pac Man in different colors and making their eyes go different ways.

My youngest loved the larger legos and all the animals he found to play with that were later made into a zoo by the older ones.

This was one of the displays with a do not touch sign on it.  I wouldn't want to spend the money on it, but Hogwarts looked pretty cool!

This was my daughter working with an employee on building her kangaroo from the directions.

The beginnings of the zoo and some of the construction of the zoo.

  1. Legos are so fun and creative! That's the one toy I've still hung on to...came in handy when some friends threw a Lego party.

  2. It looks like they had a wonderful time. Beautiful children! Thanks for sharing!

  3. Those pacman ghosts are awesome! I think I'd have just as much fun as the kids building stuff.

  4. I love Lego! I probably would still use it now... :)

  5. I've never seen a play place like that, looks like the kids had a great time.

  6. When I was a kid I loved going to the Iowa State Fair. They had a building full of legos that anyone could play with.
