Lego Rocks

We were so excited to find out that our local (FREE!) museum was hosting a Lego exhibition. We love LEGO! So today we went along and had a bit of a play with some friends and just for the fun of it, I figured I’d share it with you. 🙂

It was a hair raising experience! :)

Boys and Lego!
The boys particularly liked looking at the special sets on display.
We were surprised that there were no large displays of giant Lego sculptures. Other than a few models in the display cabinet, the rest was really more like Lego Art: large pictures made out of tiny lego blocks to create really interesting artworks (you can see some in the background). Whilst it was initially disappointing, I think it may inspire a whole new way to play with Lego. And the three giant construction tables filled with Lego blocks were certainly an attraction!
On the tables there were a few pre-constructed Lego designs. I’m not sure if these were intentionally placed there or created by other visitors. But they certainly served as an inspiration!
Copying the design required lots of focussed concentration
… and soon drew the others in for some Lego fun too. I love watching the way home ed kids tend to play without age divisions; playing and interacting together out of a common interest or shared experience, not dependent on which “class” they’re in.
Lego Lego Lego!
When’s the last time you played with Lego? 🙂

  1. That looks cool. Kai and Brett went to one here that was all sculptures, and weren’t that impressed! Funny, Brett is/was the only lego kid in our house, I never liked it, and neither does Kai – he (and I) gets frustrated when it falls apart when he plays with it! lol! I’m not sure we can really be unschoolers if he doesn’t like lego?! Isn’t that a requirement!? LOL!
