I was crawling through the back of a closet yesterday and came across containers of Stephen's lego.
Step one: sort pieces by size
Step two: sort pieces by shape
Step three: sort possible model pieces close together
Step four: make husband, who reads instructions so much better, lend a hand.
At this time we have 3 models back together, 2 models close together and 1 model at the beginning stages.
An important lesson has been learned. I am too old to play on the floor!
Today I found some flat shallow containers and all the odd bits, that haven't been sorted to the grey board, will get picked on off the floor and we will play sitting at the table like normal adults.
