I didn’t know about the LEGO® YouTube channel until very recently but boy am I glad I found it! You see, on Sundays I now spend time with Noah alone as Jamie works. I am always struggling with coming up with something fun for him! On Saturdays Jamie is off and we do something fun as a family but Sunday’s it’s just Noah and stepmommy! I usually have work to do for this site or laundry, etc (since it’s Sunday!) and since Noah doesn’t have any brothers or sisters he plays well by himself but usually asks for ideas of what to do.
This LEGO® YouTube channel has been wonderful! I can watch the videos during the week and add them to my playlist as I watch them. Then on Sundays I know that there is a list of pre-approved videos for him to watch and they’re all about one of his favorite subjects – LEGOS®!
Noah has amassed quite the LEGO® collection and he likes to keep them displayed all set up.He has some fun LEGO® sets with SpongeBob and the Monster Vampyre Hearse was one of his favorites to put together. He sets them up on the table in the living room, it’s the perfect height and when he needs help one of us is usually close by to take a look at what he has going on. I love watching him be creative and follow the instructions the first time to make whatever the instructions say and then once he has finished it break it down and try to make something new out of the pieces combined with pieces from his previous creations.
He will break them down to make things but when he leaves on Sunday afternoons he always has a nice display going on – here is this week’s display:
If you’re wondering how to create a playlist on your own YouTube channel with the videos from the LEGO® YouTube channel, check out this infographic for instructions. It’s really easy and will take just seconds to set up. I didn’t realize how easy it was to set up a playlist but it’s so easy and ensures for accessible on the go (and safe) viewing for your kids!
If you’re interested in checking out the LEGO videos, you can look at my playlist here. There is a fun array of designer videos, club TV shows, and fan creations – it’s actually pretty fun to go through and see the detail and creativity involved in many of the masterpieces featured! Most of them are videos for kids but some may be more suitable for preteens and adults due to the complexity of the LEGOS® involved (not because of anything bad, the videos are all family friendly but some are more technical than others!). I would recommend watching the videos and adding them to your own playlist so you can control exactly what your kids are seeing and can access the list from anywhere – the car, airport, on the go! There are currently over 500 videos on the LEGO® YouTube channel with more added every day.
