LEGOLAND® Shares Favorite Holiday Lego Creations

The holidays are right around the corner and that means parents will be looking for activities to do as a family when their kids are home for winter break.

"A great family activity that people don't always think about is building with LEGO® bricks," says Noel Straatsma, Master Model Builder at LEGOLAND® Discovery Centre Toronto. "Building with LEGO® bricks allows kids to use their imagination and can be a great bonding experience for the whole family."

Here are Noel's top 5 LEGO® builds to do with your kids this holiday season:

Christmas Trees – it sounds sweet and simple, but the great thing about building with LEGO® bricks is you can use your imagination! A Christmas tree can be any colour or size you want.

Gingerbread House – Avoid a sticky mess by making this year's gingerbread house out of LEGO® bricks! Whether recreating a family home or designing a funky castle, the options are endless for little budding architects. Just remember, no snacking on this one as you build!

Ornaments – If you have enough extra pieces of LEGO® bricks, work together with your kids to build ornaments for the tree! Now they can show off their work to everyone who comes to visit this holiday.

Snowman – It might be cold outside but you and your family can stay nice and warm by the fire as you build your snowman out of LEGO®. Even the most basic set of LEGO® bricks will work for this build but if you want to get more creative with colours and sizes you can find more detailed sets in the LEGOLAND® Discovery Centre Toronto store.

Santa – Who doesn’t love having Santa around the house during the holidays? Have a building competition with your kids to see who can make the best Santa and keep them on display in your home to keep you in the holiday spirit.

"Whether you are a seasoned pro when it comes to building with LEGO® bricks or someone who's just starting out, this is the perfect activity to do as a family," says Straatsma. "Everything that can be imagined, can be built at LEGOLAND® Discovery Centre Toronto and our free building stations are a great place to start this holiday."

I love love love her idea on how to make indoor snowballs with egg cartons. I am definitely going to have to try that with my kiddos since my smallest one has decided that it has to snow for Christmas.

She loved her seat so much that she has now decided that her table has look cool too so being the smarty pants that she is, she tore her table!
