Whenever we visit Legoland, here in California, one of Flynn’s favorite areas is the Build & Test space in the Imagination Zone. There are race tracks and tubs of LEGO® around the room where kids can use their imagination to build a car to race. We spend an hour or two here every time we go. So over summer break I decided to make the kids their own race track for home, where they can build their own cars and race against each other, and against their friends when they come over.
These race tracks are easy to make, and a great activity to get the kids involved in helping with too.

Only a few more weeks until Valentine's Day. If you have little LEGO lovers like I do, then they are going to love…
A little while ago I was contacted by Legoland Discovery Centers to create a sink or float science experiment for them … I…
Remember when I said I put together a few Minecraft surprises for the kids birthday last week? Well, here's another one. I've posted…
My kids don’t have a lot of toys. Sure, they receive cars and dolls from friends and family for their birthday and Christmas, but if you walk into their playroom what you will find is lots of imaginative play items. There are white boards and chalk boards, LEGO (everywhere), a puppet theater, keyboard, books, a television and a computer. I’ve always encouraged them to use their imaginations and create, whether it be building structures, pretend play, or art and crafts.
LEGO is such a big part of Marisol and Flynn’s play time. If we aren’t playing at Legoland (where we have a membership), they are often building or playing with their LEGO creations, reading the latest issue of the LEGO Club Magazine or flipping through the latest catalog marking off which sets they want next. And they collect a lot of sets. Aside from LEGO® Friends, they are also collecting LEGO® City, LEGO® Creator, LEGO® Monster Fighters, LEGO® Minifigures and LEGO® Chima. They have so much LEGO that I’ve been constructing a table for them to build, display and play with their creations in the garage. Somewhere that all of the sets can become one big happy LEGO family. Where the LEGO® Friends Dolphin Cruiser can sail past the LEGO® Creator Seaside House while the LEGO® City Coast Guard Helicopter flies overhead.
I’ve already shared Marisol’s Halloween costume for this year. I made hers first because it was easy.
I procrastinated over Flynn’s for weeks, ever since he told me he wanted to be LEGO Lord Vampyre. This costume sat in the too hard basket and I was left scrambling today to get it made in time for the annual Fox 5 San Diego homemade costume segment tomorrow morning … if you are in San Diego, tune in around 8am.
I don’t know why I put off doing this costume though, I won’t pretend it was easy, because there was a bit of trial and error, but I was able to whip it up in about 6 hours.
The hardest part was deciding what to use for the head. I wanted it to be a LEGO shape and considered cutting up a bucket, but then remembered that I had seen large LEGO head storage boxes in various stores. A trip to Toys ‘R Us and a 20% off coupon and I was set.
