Seven LEGO® Building Ideas for Spring

We woke up to about 3 inches of snow, which is super weird for Texas in MARCH!  So let’s think warmer weather with some spring LEGO® projects to build!  Here are five ideas to inspire the little builders in your house.  (Boys and girls both!  We don’t intend for any of our ideas to be for *only* boys, just boy-approved!)

Maybe your kids can display their spring LEGO® creations as a centerpiece or put them on the mantle!

Project #1:  Duckling

Project #6:  Cardinal

Okay, cardinals make me think of winter more than spring, but my 8 year old created this after studying pictures in our bird field guide, and I had to include it!

    These are great! My boys love Legos! They build them according to package instructions and then don't do anything different with them. These will give them some other ideas. Thanks!
