We love learning with Lego! It’s no secret how much we love Lego around here. We use Lego for entertainment, therapy, home decor, education, and of course, fun! My two boys are so different when it comes to Lego. My youngest wants instructions and to follow them step by step. My oldest loves a bit of inspiration, then he’s off, powered by his own imagination. Lego is one of the greatest toys you can give a child. It unlocks so many opportunities. It’s time to start Learning with Lego!
