LEGO artwork may be a new concept to most parents and teachers Australia-wide, but hear me out.
It is a known fact that LEGO predominantly serves the purpose of causing excruciating pain to the soles of unsuspecting feet. It sometimes takes the day off such tasks to clang around through the vacuum cleaner, giving parents a split second of panic at the thought that their Dyson is on the blink.
A concept new to many though, is using LEGO to create masterpieces. Lego artwork is the future and we are all for it!
A clever, think-outside-the-box, kind of teacher has shared their ingenious idea to inspire kids to become the next Van Gogh, while working on those fine motor skills.
Sharing the brilliant idea in a Facebook group, the teacher has gained mountains of praise for the crafty idea.
The mastermind behind the Lego artwork shares the success:
“Year 3 STEAM projects ( work in progress ) using LEGO blocks…..kids didn’t come near me for over an hour ”
While the activity is perfect for the classroom, parents should be rubbing their hands together schemingly, as this could very well be the answer to the next cold, rainy day.
And look, if anyone is searching for another way to entice the little ones with this, referring to these masterpieces as Minecraft artwork sure can’t hurt.
Adding art appreciation into your kids’ day is also a great way to add a little culture to their sensory diet. To quote Con and Tracey, it’s the culture, Daryl.
