This is a Lego piece that was inspired by a fellow blogging family. While I sat down this morning to view blog entries, Austyn looked over my shoulder and loved something that was made, so he wanted to make one too. He makes just about everything he sees that inspires him, but this is a new one. LOL! Making something because he saw someone else do it. So thank you to Adrienne for inspiring Austyn to make this Sleigh complete with Santa and his Armadillo/Bat/Raindeer.
“A child only pours herself into a little funnel or into a little box when she’s afraid of the world—when she’s been defeated. But when a child is doing something she’s passionately interested in, she grows like a tree—in all directions. This is how children learn, how children grow. They send down a taproot like a tree in dry soil. The tree may be stunted, but it sends out these roots, and suddenly one of these little taproots goes down and strikes a source of water. And the whole tree grows." ~ John Holt, Learning All the Time
