Shopping for LEGOs for the grandkids has renewed my love for LEGOs so I ordered one FOR ME from their Architecture Series today, The Capitol Building
I had lots of Architecture from which to choose, some I eliminated quickly, like NYC, looked boring. Sydney looked interesting and I might do that next. Not sure.
Before the set arrives, I have to figure out where I’m going to set it up because it comes with a million pieces, as seen in a photo taken by a LEGO purchaser who reviewed assembling the Capitol, Minimankerry
The same reviewer stated he sorted the pieces into zip lock bags for easier assembly. Good point.
This is a large model with over 1000 pieces, inside the box are a number of plastic bags with the bricks, I transferred each bag to a zip lock bag to make sorting easier, I also used a plastic tray to sort out all the small pieces, of which there are a lot.
I’m debating between the dining room table or setting up a separate card table singularly for the LEGO assembly. The dining room table has far more room to spread out pieces and the dining room has tons of natural light but I might not like seeing it every day. The card table I could set up in the library but it doesn’t get as much light and I might feel more removed. In a perfect world I’d take over the breakfast table but alas, we use it for every meal and use it for playing board games and the like. I have a smaller craft table in the kitchen for the grandchildren but that has a permanent collection of craft projects on it.
I didn’t have LEGOs growing up – Lincoln Logs and Pick Up Sticks and I don’t ever remember liking Lincoln Logs. But once my kids were old enough to try LEGOs, I was hooked right with them.
Can’t wait. I ordered a few other things for the little ones, a Frozen theme something and a Disney one. I’ll post pix when it all arrives.
Boring Sunday otherwise. The storm of the century has yet to appear. Darn, it hasn’t even begun to rain. No wind either. Just gray and cold. Golf tournament stinks – no one I know or care about. Lousy old movies on. I finished the weekend WSJ crossword puzzle way too quickly so I’m doing laundry.
Hope you had a more exciting day than I.
