If you have a Lego lover then this activity is for you weary-momma-who-needs-to-rest-for-5-minutes! It's a simple one. All i do is give them some kind of description, such as "something that begins with the letter C" or "something that can go in the water" and they have to use their creativity to make something that goes along with that description. It can be something real (cat? boat?) or something totally made up (this is a claw-man or this is a dinosaur creature that lives in the water). I don't time them, i don't make it a competition. Just fun!
This game is really nice for when i just want to sit down for a bit. My favorite activities are the ones i can do from the couch ;)
