Nicholas is our little engineer in the making. He loves to plan, create, tinker, and build. LEGOs are a good outlet for him. He often uses them to re-create things that he has learned about in school (usually unsolicited!).
Lately, he is very interested in geology, rocks, minerals, and fossils. So he built a LEGO mining drill machine to dig for rocks and minerals and collect them in the orange bucket at the back. What's really cool is that he attached a motor to it so the drill really spins!
I love watching him build amazing creations like this with LEGOs....or sometimes just random stuff around the house! He is always tinkering!
