The Lego seems to be taking me on a new journey.
My grandson visits me on a Thursday and I wondered what to do with all the Lego we have around.
I couldn’t hide it and it was always there.
‘Wheels grandad!’ became a familiar cry as he found a wheel and was persuaded to give it to grandad.
He ran to give it to Grandad and with a huge box of wheels to go through this kept him happily running back and forth for some time handing grandad each wheel that he had found.
I then decided to sort out a some of the old Lego and brick base plates.
I ended up using some big pieces to make a few houses which were then left out on the wall for him to find each week.
We had quite a collection of fairy houses and he did like looking inside and opening doors and windows. The woodlice also enjoyed the houses as they could hide inside and underneath. Alexander was very curious about them as he watched them dash away when he lifted the houses up.
Rather like Emmy Cat, who always ‘Runned away’ when Alexander arrives.
Bit by bit my garden became dotted around with Lego.
I remembered a display of different houses I had made when at school for our topic ‘Where we live’. The different houses were initially on display in class but had sat on the top of the cupboard for a while so these now joined Alexanders Fairy village.
But what Next?
