In honor of Presidents Day, and this day off from school (let’s be honest), I like the idea of devoting a little time to building a replica of the White House with LEGO bricks. The White House Lego Set from their Architecture Series will let your kids create a mini version of the place where Lincoln and so many subsequent US leaders slept, legislated, and did things I probably don’t want to know about. We could finish it in a lot less time than it would take for us to drive down to our nation’s Capitol, plus, once built, it looks really nice displayed on a bookshelf.
With a recommended age of 12+, it’s probably best to save the White House Lego Set for older kids, though I am sure that my 9 year old LEGO master would be just fine with this 561 piece set. Especially since he has an entire day off from school to get it done.
