LEGOs in Motion

Fun Ideas for LEGOs on Wheels

LEGOs are a great alternative to screen time, and in our opinion, every child should have access to them. Rather than invest in video games or other screen-based entertainment, we’ve opted for LEGOs and similar creative, brain-boosting options such as Tinker Toys and marble runs. If cost is a concern, try eBay or craigslist. On a couple of occasions, we’ve doubled our LEGO collection for just a few dollars via lucky yard-sale finds.

We heartily disagree with anyone who thinks LEGOs are just for boys or that girls only like the pink ones. Both of our children enjoy LEGOs and have played with them for years. It seems that these simple blocks have a universal appeal that spans continents and generations. Parents and grandparents around the world can join in the fun.

Though most of the vehicles shown here represent a group effort with Matt (Dad) acting as the lead designer, Kelly and Timmy have come up with countless variations of their own. Their ideas inspire him and vice versa. These images were pulled from several years’ worth of photos.
