My grandkids love to build and create with their LEGOs. It's such a great brain exercise for them. And after all, mental brain exercises activities are just as important for our grandkids as for our aging parents, don't you think? Not to mention for all of us in the Sandwich Generation to keep our brains active and engaged in spite of constant interruptions. 🙂
I so enjoy seeing what new designs and projects my grandchildren come up with. Recently, my oldest grandson was playing secret agent spy man with his brothers. He realized he needed something to carry his super secret spy cards! Necessity being the mother of invention, he headed for the playroom with the tubs full of their old and new LEGOs and went to work. Within an hour, he had created the coolest LEGO arm carrier…

He had so much fun designing and making it and I had so much fun snapping these photos, thanks to my wonderful iPhone.
I must say, LEGOs are a great way to inspire creativity in our grandkids. And it might be a fun project for some of us, or our senior dads, to enjoy WITH the grandkids as well. What else do you and your Sandwich Generation family like to use to get your grandkids creative juices flowing.
