Me and my brothers played with Lego a lot when we were young. We had a big box of Lego blocks, Lego figures and accessories to combine and play with. We built buildings, cars and made stories. I’m sure Lego played it’s part in each of our creative talents – which have helped me to make a living online and my brothers both being artists. Of course the same ingredients could have helped us become engineers. Ultimately what your children do is up to them, but if they play with Lego it will help them develop spatial insight and other qualities that can be quite useful growing up.
If you want that for your kids, do get them a Lego advent calendar.
