Inside: Edible LEGO pieces made with gelatin and water in LEGO shaped molds.
If I want to bring up a topic to catch (and engage) my kids’ attention, I don’t have to look too far. LEGO is always a subject that excites my kids and a question like, “Can you tell me something about this?” can keep them talking for an hour.
Just don’t says things like, “What a cute airplane!” unless you are 100% sure that it’s an airplane and not a spaceship. Nothing irritates my kids more than clueless adults. Maybe it’s just my kids, but it’s a sure way to make them shut down.
By extension, offering to do together any LEGO related activity is a sure hit that immediately elevates me to the status of super mom! So far we have done homemade LEGO soap (is a huge hit in our house), cake topper (use any favorite cake recipe and then royal icing for details), LEGO ice (for sensory play), chocolate LEGO candy (yum and makes great presents), and finally LEGO crayons.
