Lego bricks are among our favorite things to play with… All. Day. Long. The kids absolutely love building and creating and throwing them around for us to stamp on – Ouch!
Lego bricks have become so popular that people refer to building blocks as simply Legos! Here’s some trivia about the name: the patent for the original LEGOs brick system was filed on January 28, 1958 and the day is now observed as International Lego Day. Not that Lego fanatics needed another reason to celebrate their favorite pastime!
Of course, the obvious way to celebrate would be by building our own fantastic LEGO creations . (Just walk around barefoot and you’ll be sure to find a couple bricks.) If that sounds passe, you might be interested in these wonderful Lego Themed Crafts and Activities that you can enjoy with your little Lego fans!
