Have you heard the news? LEGO has announced a Doctor Who set. Pretty fantastic, huh?
And that fully awesome (more…)
If you didn’t know already, I *LOVE* LEGO. I think LEGO products are a fantastic and fun way to learn through play.
So, because I already love LEGO, it isn’t that hard for my children to convince me to buy them a new LEGO set.

Did you know there is no such thing as “LEGOs.” Its true. LEGO is a brand name and the actual product is LEGO brand bricks.
LEGO bricks are a marvelous product. So fantastic in fact that the design hasn’t been changed since 1958 yet the company is still producing a wide variety of sets and creations based around that simple 2×4 brick.

Life is hectic right now. It is just the nature of this season to be busy and sometimes we need a lesson or activity that we can grab real quick without a lot of prep.
Sometimes LittleMan gets so engrossed in his Legos that he doesn’t want to stop for anything- not to eat, not to sleep, and certainly not to bathe.
Usually Marmaduke and I tell him, “tough luck, its dinner/bed/bath time. You can play legos tomorrow.”
But occasionally we find a way to compromise.
Like this Lego bath.
Here’s something that I made for LittleMan about 8-9 months ago, which we still use several times a week:
