Now we all know that Lego is a stalwart in childhood play and learning. I even love sitting there with the kids and lego for a bit of creative play. These days though I am much more hung up on colours, I like to have all my bricks the same colour for the walls, make elaborate floor plans... basically I'm a wanna-be architect.
The kids will scold me for hogging all the pieces or heaven forbid, taking away all the 'good pieces'. So I don't play too much these days. Maybe I can do that whilst they are school this year... ahem.
So the Lego Creationary game is how I now get my Lego fix. It's a great little game and it took a little practice with our five year old frills but they are getting GREAT at it. Basically everyone picks up a card and you pick up pieces as you move around the board and build something on your card in secret. You need to disguise for as long as possible what you are building - and the first person to guess - gets points and so on to move around the board. Laura is fantastic at guessing!
Garbage truck anyone?
Olivia won because she built hers first and how easy is a lamp? Seriously!
My future engineer!
There are 4 modes of play so you can play it different ways depending on the ages - I won't encourage you to make it a drinking game.. but if you should find yourself with some friends and the game and drinks .... so be it.
So who would like to win some for their family? No alcohol included people! Seriously though a fabulous school holiday distraction for everyone!
