It’s time for LEGO® Fun Friday!  If you’re new to Frugal Fun for Boys, LEGO® Fun Friday is a twice-a-month blog linky for LEGO® ideas.  At the end of each LEGO® Fun Friday post, I also announce a building challenge for next time.  Submissions to the blog linky can be kid-generated LEGO® designs for the building challenge, or any LEGO® post.  Also, if you’re not a blogger or don’t write about LEGO®’s, feel free to share photos on the Frugal Fun for Boys facebook page.  My boys love to see what other kids have built!

Our building challenge for this week was to create funny scenes with minifigures and then to take photos of them.

Aidan, Dad, and I had a great time making these scenes!  (The younger boys just built with LEGO®’s and laughed at what we came up with.)

All the LEGO®’s were excited by the prospect of free tortoise rides!  Unfortunately, it turned out to be a pretty bumpy ride…

Princess Leia was thrilled to be entertaining with her new outdoor kitchen.

“Is the food ready yet?”  hollered Han.

“Be patient and wait,” said Leia.  “And gentlemen, we do not bring our weapons to the table!”

“Emperor, has anyone shown you the polite way to eat a turkey leg?  There’s no need to attack it.”

“Here ya go, your majesty.  One large with extra anchovies.  That will be 10 silver pieces.”

“And one!  And two!  Legs in the air!  And down.  Good job, R2D2!”

We also love the LEGO® photos at A LEGO® a Day.  Two of our favorites are “Security” and “The Toilet Ninja.”  You must check them out – hilarious!

Also check out Amazon’s Duplo sale if you’re in need of Duplo bricks – they have the Duplo Bricks and More Deluxe Bricks Box marked down from $49.99 to $39.59 – good sale!  (This is an Amazon Affiliate link.  Also, Amazon prices can change any time, so check before you order!)

Now it’s your turn!  Link up your LEGO® posts – kid-generated LEGO® designs, LEGO® learning activities, LEGO® party ideas, or anything LEGO®!  Or, share a photo on the Frugal Fun for Boys facebook page.

But first, here is the next building challenge!  The next LEGO® Fun Friday will be March 28th, and the building challenge is to choose any 25 LEGO® pieces (bricks, flat pieces, wheels, etc.) and see how many different designs you can build out of the same 25 pieces.  We tried out this challenge tonight, and my boys did not want to stop, so hopefully it will be a fun activity for your family!
