We have a lot of Lego projects at our house. When we started getting the kids Legos, The Daddy and I had no idea how educational they are. We knew there were fun. And we knew they were cool. But we didn't realize how much spatial visualization and problem solving and that sort of thing goes into changing a pile of pieces into a creation.
My kids are way better at this than me. Which is pretty awesome.
So they've been watching Transformers cartoons (yes, from the 1980's, of Saturday Morning Cartoon fame), and now they're building Transformers. With Legos. That actually transform. It's pretty awesome. Check it out!
Dragon made a Dinobot:
Hero made Metroplex - which is apparently a whole city.
And he also made Swoop, which is another Dinobot. This one is probably the most elaborate; it took the better part of three days to get it just right.
And, with all the excitement about Transformers and Legos and movie-making, Peanut had to make one too. It's pretty cute.
