LEGO Mania Link Up

Melissa at Joy of Home Educating is hosting a fun LEGO Mania Link Party. Click HERE for more details.  So I thought I would join the fun and share some creations my children have made.

This is a ship my 9 year old son recently created that he says is ready for battle. 
He named it "The 118 Star Destroyer"

And this is a close-up of the back

Here are some LEGO creations my children made awhile ago and I included these pictures and blogged about them HERE:
" A Man Roasting Marshmallows"

"The Eagle Statue"

"My Jewel Jeep"

This past December, my family went to Enchanted Christmas Gardens and there was an awesome LEGO display there.  If you click HERE and scroll down my post a little you can see some cool LEGO displays that our family admired. The church below was just one of many creative creations:

For my son's 8th birthday, we had a LEGO party.  I made LEGO cakes and had LEGO candy!

And one more great LEGO you know about LEGO Quest Challenges?

What is LEGO QUEST?  Find out more HERE at the LEGO QUEST blog.

I have been a subscriber to LEGO Quest for awhile now and we receive emails about the next challenge.  My kids decided to participate in the latest quest which was to take these 30 blocks....(doesn't have to be exact colors) and make a creation.

This is what my 2 oldest children came up with using the 30 blocks above:

"Empire State Building" built by my son

"Mini-Castle" built by my oldest daughter

Your children are very creative. My son is stuck on just making war planes and cars. Thank you for the links. I voted for you yesterday and today. Sorry I didn't leave you a comment yesterday as it was last minute and I was tired.

I know you understand, but it is nice to return your kindness. We are having a great weekend, and I am trying to catch up on some rest. I hope you are too. ;)

Hi Anna-Marie,
Maybe your kids will get into LEGO and if/when they do start saving the pennies since they are expensive, but we think well worth the cost and hours of creative play!
