Only the best is good enough

– Ole Kirk Christiansen

A Brief History on Lego: 

The Lego company began in the 1930’s with a 17-year-old Danish boy named Ole Kirk Christiansen who started carving wooden toys.

[Tweet “The word ‘LEGO’ itself comes from two Danish words “LEg GOdt” meaning “play well”.”]

Over the years it has become a huge brand and has the well-earned status of “Toy of the Century” (Fortune Magazine and the British Association of Toy Retailers). Lego brand has the ability to transcend age, language and gender barriers and holds a comforting familiarity in both adults and children. 

I am excited to share some creative ways to learn and play with that are rounded up from some of my favorite websites and bloggers. This resource is great to bookmark and come back to when you find that you’re in need of Lego lesson plans, printables, games, and lots more.

There is no pressure to complete the list in a day or even a month, but it will be a great starting point for the day Lego Fandom Mania strikes your home. I just created that term Lego Fandom Mania and I am sure that you get the idea.

The day your begin their life long love for building with Lego bricks you will be prepared with ideas and may even possibly seem “cool” to your kids. Not that you are not cool already, you will just be that much more cooler!
