GIVEAWAY CLOSED - Winners: Kim M, Kristy @ QP, Becky
School holidays are only a few days away, here in NSW. They seem to have come around quickly, though I admit that we really, really need them. The kids are exhausted and now that winter has arrived, we (or should I say, I) look forward to sleep-ins. Warm cosy days in front of the heater. Baking delicious food without the hurry of having to be somewhere. Crafting and creating.
Sure, I’ll let the kids watch some television, but I do make them turn it off and find things to do – things which use use their imagination. With the cold and wet weather, playing outside is a little difficult in our current living situation, so I encourage them to be creative and use their imagination.
Sam loves LEGO. He has loved it since he was little. So when I switch on my ‘mum’ voice and say “turn of the television and do something to use your brain”, he gets his big box of LEGO to make things. Like houses, towns, robots, airplanes, trains… you know… boy stuff.
When I was asked if we’d be interested reviewing a LEGO Creator pack, it really was a no-brainer.
Cold, wet winter school holidays PLUS LEGO equals a perfect match.
But we couldn’t wait until the school holidays. Sam got home to discover a big brown parcel at the front door and that was it.
The LEGO Creator 3-in-1 Treehouse is fabulous fun. Sam sat down with hubby one afternoon and they created the treetop hideaway. I could hear them working together by the rustle of the LEGO bricks. Chatting about school, life, friends, what was for dinner… you know… boy things.
Once the treetop hideaway was finished, Sam called me over to have a look at it. He was so proud of their combined efforts. I ooohed and aaahed at the appropriate times. Then he promptly began to pull apart his tree house to make the next project.
LEGO Creator comes with instructions for 3 different projects – all using the same LEGO bricks in the pack. Perfect for the imagination (and for a house with limited space).
The treetop hideaway can be rebuilt into a cute lakeside hut with a jetty and pizza oven or a 2-story farmyard barn with a garden and wheelbarrow using the supplied alternate building instructions.
With all of the department store annual toy sales beginning this week, I really recommend LEGO 3-in-1 Creator. It’s like 3 packs of LEGO in one. Bargain!
With thanks to LEGO, I have three (3) LEGO Creator packs to giveaway. Each pack is valued at $49.99.
To enter, please leave a comment telling me some fun projects and activities for kids to create these winter school holidays.
