Did you know that it is National Dino Day? Do you have any dinosaur fans in your life? I do. That is why I was so happy to receive these dinosaur-themed LEGO sets for the kiddos to enjoy and celebrate with. As you can see, my son was happy about it as well.
Not only do these LEGO sets allow your imagination to roar wild, it also allows my husband and son to bond as they are building it together which is exactly what they did last night. It was so cute watching them do it together.
I loved seeing my son play with something that he and his father built together and using his imagination in the process (which I feel so many kids don’t get the chance to do as much of these days).
Even my husband had some fun with it.
There is still one more LEGO set to be built, so I am hoping that they will be able to make it happen today in honor of National Dino Day.
Want to get these sets for a dino lover in your life? Here’s some more info. about the LEGO sets.
