Something fun for Sunday, my daughter made this with Legos:
She said it was a 避難場所 or hinanbasho which means a refugee-center.1 She said all the trees were falling down, so they had to stay in there to be safe.
My daughter and I both like Legos a lot. We watched the Lego Movie together, but she didn’t understand all of it. Still, she thought it was funny, and sometimes sings the main song: Everything is Awesome.2
My daughter prefers the Friends collection of Legos, but she also has lego blocks from when she was a baby. Plus, I have a few Legos as well (Star Wars, Pirates of the Caribbean, Lord of the Rings) which you can see in the upper-left of the photo. She put them all together in a big refugee-center. We don’t play video games much. Instead, I try to encourage her to do things like this, or make things out of paper.
Playing Legos with my daughter is really fun because she has a good imagination. For example, the turtle Lego in the middle is the Queen. Why? She just is. And there’s a President too, but she’s pregnant. Also, she wants her girl Legos to marry my boy Legos, so we have to do a big wedding ceremony sometimes.
Legos are good daddy-daughter time I think. I always enjoy it. 🙂
1 Because we watch NHK News (Japanese News) on TV daily, I think that’s where she learned about 避難場所. She learned a lot about politics too, not all of it good. :p It’s amazing what 7 year old kids can understand.
2 But she sings songs from the Disney movie, Frozen, a lot more.
