Mental brain exercise activities are just as important for our grandkids as for all of us baby boomers and senior citizens - and LEGOs definitely helps with thatMy 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. πŸ™‚

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…

The Sandwich Generation granny nanny loves the creative ideas my grandkids come up with - including with their old and new LEGOs

complete with a slot for his cards

My grandson took his old LEGOs and created this cool spy carrier that straps to his arm which I shot with my easy to use digital camera

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

Ultimate Blog Party 2012 and the Sandwich Generation is invited - its a great way for those of us caring for aging parents while babysitting grandchildren to enjoy blog party fun right at home
P.S. Are you enjoying the Ultimate Blog Party 2012? Howdy!  Of special interest to all of us with kids and grandkids who are homeschooling, Sunflower Schoolhouse is a great resource in general. Today I wanted to share her cute article about her son having fun with her camera and his LEGO projects. I'm going to have to show my grandkids this as well. They're gonna love it! I foresee future LEGO movies mysteriously appearing in my old iPhone they use for the game apps. What do you think? And I just plain loved the picture Sippy Cup Mom shared of a ginormous Woody and Buzz Lightyear from Toy Story – made out of LEGOs! Won't our Lego-loving kids and grandkids LOVE that pix! πŸ™‚ Don't forget – tomorrow is the last day of the #UBP12. Have you signed up to win one of their many cool prizes? πŸ™‚
