I Am an Artist of Lego!

Apologies in advance -- I don't mean to turn this into a Lego blog -- but I have to show off my masterpiece!

It's a Lego tree-house.



Or, more precisely, it's a Lego stone house built into a tree.



I didn't have enough brown pieces to make it just a tree house, but I got some interesting new grey cave-wall type pieces when I bought a sack of 1 Kilo of used Legos from a second-hand store.



My 7-year-old Leo helped out by making some of the bushes and the little ducks in the stream. He was an enthusiastic participant right from the beginning, even helping me wash and dry the used Legos.

[me: I felt so Swiss, carefully scrubbing all those Legos with a toothbrush! my husband: Yes, that was very Swiss of you.]

But honestly, that's pretty much the coolest thing I've seen made out of legos ever.

Nice work. You and the boys should join the local Lego Users Group (LUG). To wash Lego's in bulk, use a zippered pillow case. Put the Lego bricks in it and put it in the washing machine on gentle cycle with a mild soap.

Amazing!

And I'm laughing so hard at your conversation with your husband. Very Swiss of you indeed.

Thanks Shock!!!

That's a great idea! Maybe I'll go back there and buy another sack of them...

Thanks Olivia!!! :D
