A couple of weeks ago, Langston was given the opportunity to attend a Play-Well Lego Workshop near our house and I haven’t been able to get him to let go of his LEGO® collection ever since! This might surprise you, but for this 6 year old, that’s a big deal.
I’ve had a love-hate relationship with LEGO® since they became part of our toy collection. I love them for the fact that they can occasionally keep my kids busy for long periods of time (if they are playing together) while I get stuff done around the house, but I hate them every time I find one under my foot, after wincing in pain. And, let’s not forget the constant organization battle I’m faced with. Ugh. Just thinking about that, alone, makes me a little crazy.
And this may come as a surprise, but Langston isn’t very good at playing with his LEGO® collection by himself. It’s almost like if he can’t build what he sees pictured on the box, then what he builds isn’t good enough, so he’d rather not try. But, thankfully, after five mornings at Play-Well TEKnologies LEGO® camp, his relationship with his collection is brand new and I love it!
