With the kids being home every other day and at school the other days we have to get creative with what to do in the time between school. Andy has spent a lot of time in front of a screen and I suggested that he do something else and he said that he had no projects to work on. I reminded him that he had Emmett’s house from The LEGO Movie. He had started that with one of his friends almost a year ago and was saving it for the friend to come back. I told him that he should just build it and enjoy it because we don’t know when that friend can come back. So, he spent the afternoon building and not on screens. Then he showed everyone how it worked right before bed. He was very proud of his work. I may have to bring in the giant LEGO container for him to use. He likes being able to make whatever he wants and not so much look at the instructions.

Andy’s LEGO Super Mario LEGO starter set has arrived. He was very excited and built all of the sets that he has for Super Mario. In addition to the set that he bought I picked up two other sets for him to build and add to his Super Mario set. With them he can make bigger playsets for Mario to advance through. There are special bricks that make Mario do special things. The Mario unit can tell what color bricks he is on and he can do different things as he moves around the area. There are several other sets that he can get to add to this and then he can do even more. There are different outfits that you can put Mario in to allow him to do even more things. There are several suits that Mario can use including the Fire Suit, Cat Suit, Builder Suit and Propeller suit. When Mario puts these on he can do additional feats like collect more coins or shoot fire at the enemies. Eventually we’d like to add Bowser’s castle to the mix.
