One thing that all my children from the oldest to the youngest love to do is build with blocks. I love to see their creativity flow when they are building and creating their masterpieces. Each year the older kids usually put together a piece to enter in the county fair. We as a family will sit down in the evenings and just build stuff together or have races to see who can build the biggest tower, neatest car. The possibilities are endless to what the kids come up with as to what we will be making.
I recently got the chance to check out some wonderful brick building books from Sofie & Nate with the kids. The books I received were Zoo Animals - Brick Building Activity Book and Farm Animals - Brick Building Activity Book. The kids really enjoyed these books and creating the animals in the book.
Most of the animals in the books can be created using the classic LEGO box sets. I like that the animals are ranked in difficulty to create along with helping young children learn key cognitive concepts and problem solving skills. The books walk you through step by step on how to build each animal. Also the fun part is you do not have to follow the recommend colors that they suggest maybe you want to make a Red Rhino instead of a gray one go for it!
These books make a great gift for anyone who loves to build with bricks! I know my children are really enjoying the books as am I because now I can make a Flamingo one of my favorite animals.
