Part Two

 
 
LEGOS!
 
 
 
Building with Legos is a serious business
 
around my home. My 13 year old son and
 
his 10 year old sister have been playing
 
with Legos for years. They have built a
 
whole world of Legos and they dubbed it
 
LEGOLAND. My son can go on the Lego
 
web site, look at the schematics for a Lego
 
car model for a few seconds and then a few
 
hours later, he’s built the same car from
 
memory.
 
What’s really going one underneath all
 
that playing? Well for starters, building
 
with Legos teaches problem solving. It
 
allows for creativity which leads to some
 
great inventions! And also I believe there
 
are things going on in the child’s brain
 
that defy labeling. So next time your child
 
is engrossed with Legos, don’t pull her
 
away from them, go buy her another few
 
hundred blocks and encourage this type of
 
creativity.
