LEGO Inspiration Tours and Books

During our visit to St. Jacob's in Waterloo, we enjoyed playing at the Toy Building Zone located right across the Holiday Inn Express. We also went to the Lego Nation Tour when it happened in Toronto, and had hours of fun building with Lego and finding lots of inspiration.

My son has been using Lego bricks to come up with a variety of picture designs. He has been exploring Lego Technic and finds it interesting. My children have been reading Lego and Star Wars inspired DK readers such as Death Star Battles, The Story of Darth Vader; I like that these readers encourage them to be engaged reading.

We have been exploring the below Lego books from DK such as...

There are facts and information about the LEGO Star Wars minifigures and vehicles from the dark side in action-packed situations.

  7. My seven loved their Lego and some still do. My grandchildren are big fans too so this would be a great book for them as Star Wars is another big hit with them (and their dad!).

  13. Oh gosh my kids would have loved to have gone to a LEGO tour, and they would love these books - LEGO is the number 1 gift on their Christmas wish lists this year. Luckily I was able to snag a great set yesterday on a big sale, and then I found a set of 10 "building ideas" books at Costco, so they will have hours of fun creating stuff after Christmas. Love it!!
