Lego Obsessed

To say we are enamored with Legos is
putting it lightly.  We have played with
Legos just about every day we have been here.
So, what does a homeschooling mama do?
Make a lesson out of it of course.

We are following directions to make numbers
and dinosaurs (did you know you can find these
online--for free?!)

I found a few copyright free images, so we can
create our own Mini-Figure, color and the sort
the Mini-figs by size, and draw facial expressions.

I also made a graph, maze, some items to measure, 
fun facts, and activities I want O to do with the Legos.
Some of the activities include 
::Create a pyramid
::Create a boat that will float
::Make letters/names with the Legos
::Build a Denmark flag (where Legos were created)  and 
::Make a bridge that can hold up a book.

After all that hard work and research, I discovered I
basically just reinvented the wheel. already created a great
 Lego themed packet.  So I printed it off too.
My school work contained more creating, and hers 
had more numbers and reading.  Win-Win.

 O was super excited when she got back from
her trip with the grandparents and discovered
school work would include her favorite toy.
We have done a few days now, and we are loving it!
School is so much easier when everyone is enjoying it.
