Winner of the Best Talking Animal Spring Garden Lego Creation

March 27, 2011

Even though it was Sunday, The Nut House Homeschool was in session. Today’s assignment was to create a Lego creation based on Spring. The kids were asked to use as many Legos as the could to create a Spring setting. Little Nut Nut, Wee Nut and Honey Nut have a massive Duplo collection and my litttle 4 year old was excited to win his very first Lego Competition.

Yesterday, while the big kids were camping with Mr Wall Nut, I headed out to Target to get some prizes. All prizes were outdoor Spring themed goodies. One prize is, apparently one of the biggest fads in the world of 4-9 year olds and the first time our kids have gotten into a trendy fad that their peers are ga ga over.

The story behind the prizes will have to wait for another day though, tonight is for Little Nut Nut and his amazing Talking Animal, No Cats Allowed, Spring Garden creation. Off to the left you can see his swimming pool and off to the right you can see his garden. In the middle is where the talking animals hang out and talk, lol. The tiger is allowed because it is not the type of cat that comes into our yard and uses our gardens and pole shed as a little box.

 

 

 

He likes to help me play FarmVille on facebook. He will remind me to check to see how our crops are growing and makes sure I have enough coins to pay for the upkeep of the farm. If you look at the garden off to the right, you can see that he as fertilized his crops with sparkly stars to help his flowers grow. I have been using FarmVille as a homeschool tool for over a year. The kids help to decide which crops to plant and what time of day. They know that they can’t plant crops that will be ready for harvest in 4 hours late in the day or they will wither before they have time to check on their farm. We also talk about money, how to spend it best and why it is important not to spend all of the coins. It is a silly game, but the kids enjoy it and making decisions. I enjoy that I can teach them about things like time, money and taking care of a “living” thing. We will be planting our real seeds in the next fee weeks for planting outside. The kids love gardening and I love that they love it!
