LEGOS are always a hit for the holidays and this year we've found two excellent books that will excite any little LEGO-lovers! The first, 365 Things to Do with LEGO Bricks, provides a LEGO activity for every day of the year.The other, DC Comics Super Heroes Character Encyclopedia combines two major kid interests: Super Heroes and Legos. When we find gifts that combine our children's interests with reading, we consider it an exceptional find!
We have quite a few LEGO masters in our family and after a while it feels like LEGOS are coming out of every closet, drawer and storage container in the house. And no matter how carefully they are stored in the beginning, they end up buckets of mixed up pieces. The author must have had similar experiences because this book has come up with 365 unconventional ways to use LEGO pieces! From LEGO treasure hunts, to magic tricks, to stop-motion movies or structure challenges the possibilities are endless. It's a great way to keep kids engaged and allow them to tap into their own creativity and problem-solving skills. Here are a just a few of our favorite things the book includes:
- Brain Teasers
- Tricks and Pranks
- Activity Selector and Timer
- One-Player and Multi-Player Games
- Solo and Group Challenges
- Party Planning Activities
- LEGO How-Tos
