I've made many a swimming pool or lake with Legos. This usually involves stacking layers of blue Legos with borders - not very original yet I prided myself on the details. So when I asked my son why he only had torsos on this blue plate he gave the perfect answer. His men were swimming. How cool is it to be outdone by your own child when it comes to thinking outside the box?! Very.
We saw Cars 2 and little man came home and immediately set to work creating his own movie theatre. He even included a projector room! Nice that Star Wars characters, pirates and construction workers all get along so well.
As much as I cringe to see him dismantle the sets and mix them together...
I love the combinations he comes up with.
