Lego And A Child’s Creative Mind
Every morning, as soon as he wakes up, my son would go to his Lego play station and play with his Lego Star Wars collection. Most of the time, he creates his own fighter planes and spaceships complete with missile blasters. He even made Lego zombie space fighters to spice things up. His ability to create something either from a Lego manual book or from scratch amazes me. I’m not really good with following instructions and for him to build a model, piece by piece, page by page down to the last details is truly admirable. I’m my son’s greatest fan.
Last Sunday, as part of our Father’s Day celebration, I bought him a small box of Lego Star wars of his choice. He looked so excited. As soon as we hit the car, he started reading the manual. When we reached home he announced proudly, “I got this. It is easy!”
About 30 minutes after, he pulled my hand while I was in the computer and said, “Dad, I’m done. Check out my new Star Wars Lego.” When I saw it the first time, I told myself, “Wow. He is good.” I told him proudly with a huge smile on my face, “Great job son!” He smiled back looking so happy. We then started making the “Grapocheese” monster made of grapes and cheese. Before eating our edible Grapocheese monster, my son’s new Star Wars mini-figures had to blast it into pieces. Making it easier for us to chew them.
Creating A Fun And Happy Memory
Creation has a vast meaning. I can be about making Artistic masterpieces or it could be about making things that are useful and functional. It could be something that gives life and inspiration or could simply be about creating memories that makes us smile. Memories that makes us feel blessed with a meaningful and rich life. A life of love and joy among the people we spend our lives every moment of everyday.
Thanks for sharing your day with me. I hope you enjoyed my version of the Weekly Photo Challenge called “Create.” May it inspired you to create a new beautiful memory. Memories that will keep you smiling even when the clouds are grey. What have your created recently that made you say, “Wow, life is good!”
