The Brick Chronicles feature unique creations made with Lego® bricks. Hopefully you, and the children in your life, will find them as inspiring as I do!
My youngest son is really into fossils and dinosaurs at the moment. At six, one would have thought he was past the “dinosaur” stage, but he likes to come into things in his own sweet time. Even though he’s been watching Dinosaur Train* for the last year or so, it’s only recently that he has become quite intrigued by these prehistoric animals. I think we have checked out nearly every juvenile book on dinosaurs from our local library. Since he’s so fascinated, his older brother has taken up an interest as well. They do that often, my children. They each have their own distinct interests, but they are also very willing to delve deeply into the passion of the other. It makes play time fun to watch.
* I have to admit that at first I thought this was a silly show designed to sell toys, but then I actually sat down and watched it with my kids and I have been quite impressed. From the catchy rock-a-billy opening to the unique “cast,” my kids have picked up a ton of accurate information about dinosaurs and other prehistoric animals. My favorite is the idea that a “time tunnel” is approaching – a fabulous way to help kids (and adults) to understand that not all of these dinosaurs lived during the same era.
