It’s been a while since we’ve been to a LEGO Club meeting. I’ve spoken about this before and this is the first build since the bumblebee she has shown an interest in building. Taking the time to show her the build and ask her if she has any interest in building it has really been helpful. Such a simple concept to ask your child if they’re interested, right? So this weekend, we went to the July 2016 LEGO Club meeting.
While there was still some pushback about building by herself, she was attentive and did an excellent job of following directions. I was very happy with how the morning turned out.
She was also excited about building the habitat for the frog… which of course, involved lots of pink and yellow bricks. Fortunately, one of the employees came around and gave us a considerable amount of sand green 1×2 plates and 1×1 bricks.
Which, as you can see, we didn’t use any of in her final build. Mami will probably keep these bricks for herself.
She also had a good show-and-tell moment. I do like it when she is excited to show off her creations. Feeling like she made something good is important to her self-worth.
Our frog ended up eating fireflies instead of the scary spider. ;)
