Lego Mosaic

I admit – the kids have been spending more time relaxing and playing than actually learning a whole lot lately, but I figured they needed the break from school and have more time for free play and general goofing off.

My 5 year old middle daughter though, is the one who’ll usually pull out the educational toys and one she seems to like a lot is the Lego Mosaic set.

These Lego Mosaic sets come in two different sets – one to make 4 different mosaic patterns and one to make 9 different mosaic patterns (of course both sets can be used without a pattern and they kids can create their own designs).

It’s great for pattern design and for fine motor skills because you really have to press those little pieces firmly into place. It is a small part hazard and is rated for kids 4 and up.

We were lucky to find this set more than half price at Tuesday Morning. When I saw them for $5 a piece, I grabbed a few of them because they make really nice gifts for both boys and girls.

    We have gazillions of Lego, but I’d have probably grabbed a set like that myself. Maybe I will cross path with it one day 🙂

    It is a pretty cool set. My 5 year old actually filled in all the spaces even though she didn’t have to. She filled in a blue sky with white and black clouds and other colors below the dragon. It’s definitely a good one to get.

    Tuesday Morning is like a clearing house for the name brand stores. It’s along the lines of a TJ Maxx or AJ Wright or Marshall’s.

    Here is a store locator – just type in your zip code to find out if there’s one near you.

    I love shopping at those types of stores for educational toys because they are usually 50% off retail price.
