We are just getting into the smaller sized LEGO here. Although my son loves to put together LEGO sets, we have a lot of fun with our own LEGO building ideas. Think outside the box, and try some new LEGO activities with classic bricks. There are so many early learning ideas built into these easy LEGO builds.
