I had a babysitter for my son for five years. She came primarily in yellow, red, and blue. She was engaging, adaptive, and creative. Physically, she was geometric. The only caveat: the more time she spent with him, the more he wanted of her.
Yes, I’m talking about LEGO blocks. Initially, it was the chunky humble building blocks that came with no instructions or booklets. You just had to trust your imagination to build shapes, undo, and start all over again. Now that I look back, the foundations for his straight lines, symmetry and perseverance were laid early in life as we spent hours on end creating shapes.
Then, my brother introduced him to LEGO when he moved to the US. It just wasn’t affordable to buy here. His collection grew slowly; part of what he is today is due to the many afternoons spent in the company of LEGO and origami.
The obsession with LEGO is real. Parents with kids who spend hours deftly building shapes out of these blocks will know what I’m talking about. Now imagine designing your kids room around the concept of these blocks like wardrobe shutters. I think it’s a brilliant idea to engage their creative juices.
