See? Over time, we have a couple of baskets like this that move around our home. It is full of flat pieces for fortresses, or stations, or planes, automobiles, you name it. We even have some Transformer type stuff too. Its fun to sit around with a few of these pieces and create whatever comes to mind. As the boys get older we don't quite get the time to fiddle with this like we used to.
Here is what Brian and I put together a couple of nights ago. Lately, its been sporty stuff, but not to long ago it was a star wars fighter plane, and a Lego race car too. We vary!
Remember these? Yes, I still have mine. GO ahead, laugh. I loved Lincoln Logs! I keep these around for "old school" times as the boys like to put it! The box is long gone, but the imagination isn't!
