We all thought it would be a good idea to head down to the Art Gallery here in town these school holidays and WE WERE RIGHT.
My boys had the best time with thousands of pieces of Lego whilst my girl and I wandered the Gallery taking in the artworks. My King happily stayed home with Child #1 and it must have been peaceful quiet for him for a couple of hours.
When I read in the Midwest Times that Lego for kids was coming to the art Gallery I thought.. “Oh yeah, someone’s got a few bags of Lego and dumped them for the kids to play with”. My boys spend hours and hours with the stuff at home but I was curious as to what they would actually have there. What could it hurt? It was a good option these holidays, cheap, the boys really wanted to go, and it’d be a win-win for the boys and the girls, so I wagged a day off work and took them.
I didn’t expect WHITE Lego. This was a lovely surprise, and the next best surprise was that it was PLAIN Lego. My boys are so pre-occupied with colours and there are more “special” pieces than regular pieces in their home kit. They get hung up on the people, and are forever changing hairdo’s and trouser pieces on the little men figures. The colours have to be just right, and it is nothing unusual for 20 minutes to be spent looking for that ONE perfect piece.
So, as you can imagine, this was a lovely surprise. White Lego, let your imagination run wild.
Check them out! There’s my boys. This photo was taken from the level above, can you see Dan, he’s got the red hoody. My oh my… that’s a LOT of Lego. Matty said he could swim in it. Haha.
They are already planning the trip back there next week with Dad.
