Grandkids and LEGOs
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. 🙂
Creative Kid Designs
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…
complete with a slot for his cards
He had so much fun designing and making it and I had so much fun snapping these photos, thanks to my wonderful iPhone.
Grand-Toddlers and LEGOs
Got some younger grandkids who also want to play with LEGOs? Here are some more fun ideas to use with LEGOs – including the uber simple and scintillatingly brilliant idea of having grand-toddlers count LEGO bricks in between building towers, fences, and tunnels, like my grandson and I enjoy. Find more ideas at FreeHomeSchoolDeals. Another educational and easy idea for our younger grandkids to enjoy – put down colored sheets of paper. Then match the LEGO colors to the sheets. What a great idea. I’m giving both these a try later this week with my own grand-toddler. 🙂
LEGOs Help Grow Creativity
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.
absolutely agree…creative games as as important to kids as food!
Thank you so much for mentioning Sunflower Schoolhouse in your post. Lego movies will be fun. We are moving on to claymation.
How fun, Honey! And you’re very welcome. I appreciate your great tips for fun educational activities for our grandkids 🙂
Thanks Hari 🙂
