Lego Creators! Mr. Snail! Minions!
Huck & Milo love, love, love the Lego Creator Building tips videos on Lego.com. These videos have real Lego designers giving tips on how to make all kinds of Lego creations. The boys can watch these videos over and over again. One of their favorites is How to Build Mr. Snail. We have a lot of Mr. Snails. A few days ago, Huck decided that each of us should have our own Mr. Snail, so he, Milo and I each made one. Since Steve wasn’t home from work yet, Huck set up this helpful Mr. Snail Maker and set it at Steve’s spot at the dinner table so that he could create his own Mr. Snail.
Since they love the videos so much, they often pretend to make their own videos. I will often hear quiet building in their room and then, “Hi, my name is Milo and I’m a Lego designer. Today I am going to show you how to build…”
Recently, there have been a lot of Despicable Me minions being built. When they showed me a few of them that they designed, I thought they were really great and offered to record a real Creator video of their designs. It was just before bed time, so I said we would have to wait until the next day when we had a better light. Of course, they woke me up at 6:45 am the next day to make their video. So please excused their unbrushed hair – I was barely awake!
