Father’s day is coming, and this year I cannot wait to celebrate the day with my own father, along with my husband and sons. It’s a big deal and a special day. One that I don’t think we turn enough attention to, other than to suggest a tee-shirt or that wild and crazy tie you just know dad is going to stick in the closet and never wear. We often talk about mother’s and their role in the family dynamic, but what about dads?
My husband was so proud when we had our boys, and he tried very hard to connect with them. It’s not always easy for dads to communicate their feelings, especially to their sons. That’s why I love that Lego was always something I could count on to help bridge the gap between them.
How Lego can help fathers and sons connect to one another.
When my brothers were growing up, Lego was something that was more than just pieces mom stepped on while collecting the laundry. It was a way for my father to connect with his sons by building far away places with imaginative stories being told through the art of play.
One of the largest (gifts) given worldwide, Lego has spanned generations with their adventure play-sets. Lego has everything from Star Wars to Guardians of the Galaxy to Paw Patrol. There is always something for everyone.
Lego is a great tool to help kids of all ages and genders with their gross and fine motor skills through building and using their hands. It also helps kids aim to think outside the box as they aim to bring their own creations to life.
