Wednesday Lego – Camp Gran Free Time

We let the kids take my Lego out and build things, and yes I bought this Lego for ME. However the train and track is Heather’s.  Here’s what they did:

Next week I’ll have pictures of the little wooden paddle boats we’re going to make.

If you need me – I’ll be in the shop,

    I’m very jealous of your LEGO train. We’re planning on getting one to route through our LEGO winter village one of these years.

  2. Lego are a great teaching tool for kids along with being fun. My son (20) works at a store that teaches engineering through the building of Lego. They teach classes, offer birthday parties, and also have drop in options. They sell Lego, too, but not for profit. He’s loved Lego from his younger years and still has them along with other sets he’s added to his collection. So I’m finding out that you’re never too old to build with Lego. Great fun and post!

    It’s nice to see that the camp is still going strong! I think that Legos are a good crowd pleaser. 🙂

  7. That’s quite a collection. How long did it take to build the town? I hope you put the train out at Christmas!

    • They started building the town on Sunday. And yes, that train is part of our Christmas display. Heather and I often make a Lego train station and little town as part of the Christmas decorations.

  8. Boy, do I remember Lego fights! Well, usually arguments, often shrieking. Life was nothing if one lacked the peices for a roof – a good roof was the foundation of Lego life as we knew it. Of course, my brothers and I never dreamed of what Lego would become!
    We fought over the thin flat peices: good for both floor and ceiling, and the red ones that, placed together, form a rooftop triangle. Oh, and five little trees, which the three of us usually ended up throwing at each other.
    A stranger overhearing us might have found it hard to believe that we were having a good time – but we had a blast! Arguing at construction sites is just a key expression of Irish culture…

    I’m glad yr grandkids are there! Were they surprised to see the Legos, or are grandpa’s Legos a standard by now? They build like–let me see if I can guess – um, 7 or 8 year-olds, with a grown-up
    stepping in to tidy up for the photo shoot?
    Well, if I’m way off, it’s because of all those trees I got whacked with. I did once have an eagle eye, but there’s only so many years one can spend trapped on a carpet beneath 20 four-year-olds.

    Thanks for a great post! Sorry for babbling on….

    • Great memories! My kids are 11 and 13. Sadly their interest in Lego is waning a bit, but they still like my set – it’s a bit of a tradition to play with Grandpa’s Lego.
