Creativity and Imagination

Pete and I had a special surprise in the form of a Christmas present for Ethan, but we did not bring it along on our trip.  So the morning after we reached home, after he had showered and got dressed, we told him we had a surprise for him, that we were giving him a present.

Boy, if you could only see his face light up, as he smiled and said, “Present!”

 

And then as he tore the wrapper bit by bit, his anticipation and curiosity became joy and happiness as he discovered that he was gonna have a new toy: a 71-piece Lego-Duplo set!  He immediately started playing with it (and so did his Daddy!), and before long Ethan was already building stuff!

 

Check out that giraffe structure, which he did all on his own!

 

Now he would tell us, “I built a house!” and show us his very colorful house which is usually the tallest tower he can construct… or he would build a truck, or an airplane…oh ooops…sorry…the airplane was built by Daddy for Ethan!

It’s definitely THE perfect gift for Ethan to hone his creativity and imagination, and next up, we are eyeing the expansion pack…heh…cuz frankly 71 pieces ain’t enough to go around! :D

Let the creative cells begin its work on the little brain…. Wonderful present parents, wonderful! *clap clap clap*

Joyce says: And it also serves to entertain us parents!

Nice gift! Does his pick up and keep all the 71 pieces once he’s done playing? Mine doesn’t….he’s a real brat but only his parents to blame.

Joyce says: Yes, he does! *beams* He will even separate the pieces individually and keep them in the box. Ain’t that sweet? :)

Definitely need to buy more. Vy good investment. Good for Ethan AND his Daddy. hehehe
Happy New Year!

Joyce says: Happy New Year to you too!

I love Lego! Had tons when I was a kid, and I was very particular about the colors used. Heh.

Happy New Year 2009, Ethan boy!

Joyce says: Yeah, color coordination is also one of the skills that can be mastered through Lego, huh?

wahh koko! Nice tall truck!! Looks delicious too! Mmmmmm…:-D

Joyce says: Delicious???!!!

Sigh…we so want to get that & the expansion set for our little Bob the Builder but definitely not from Malaysia or China! Too expensive…

Lego is really good for little builders like them :-)

Joyce says: Yes, Lego helps a lot with creative minds and little hands!
