Preserving Lego Memories and Fun With Legos: Lego Island

My daughters love to build and create with Legos. 
It's hard to take some of their creations apart so after we've displayed them for a bit, 
I take a photo of their favorite projects so we can preserve them 
without having a full-fledged Lego Museum in our house!
We do have a few shelves in our house dedicated to Lego displays (they are a pain to dust) 
and we rotate our creations pretty regularly!

We are compiling them into a scrapbook of awesome Lego Creations. 
Since I use this blog as a way to document our creative adventures, 
I thought I'd start sharing some of them here with you.

This little "scene" is from over a year ago, created when my older daughter was 9. 
I love the girl surfer. the wavy seaweed and the sea serpent. 
I think the sea dragon was inspired by the giant life-sized 
sea dragon made out of legos in Downtown Disney in Orlando, Florida. 

My girls like to assemble some of the big Lego kits like the Hogwart's castle and the Hobbit House. 
Mostly, they like to freestyle and create from their own imaginations! 

What do you do with your kid's Lego creations?

That's a great idea! I'm going to encourage my daughter to take photos of her creations since she has a digital camera. She can create her own photo album then which she'd enjoy.

What a great idea! Taking apart Lego creations in our house is a hard thing to do, but taking pictures of them & giving my boys their own Lego album is perfect.

My son begs and begs and begs for new kits then builds them, asks me take a picture, then tears them down to build his own things. He has no problems wrecking anything, maybe it's a boy thing? When I was younger I hated wrecking anything I'd made.

My 10 yr old is a huge lego fan and creates some really cool things. Thank you for this idea!! We will start photographing his creations (and it may make cleaning them up a little easier for him, knowing there is a pic).

I'll make him a mini album as a surprise stocking stuffer. ;)

Love these ideas ladies!! Thank you so much!

Your kids are very creative. I love their imagination and ability to show it in their Lego creations.

I love this idea as well - my daughter has the hardest time parting with her Lego creations, and we still have some from Christmas :)

This is a lovely idea! I tend to photograph many of my children's creations - of all kinds - but haven't thought of making a scrapbook.
