A couple of weeks ago Roo was set a very special challenge, to build her very own Lego Dream Home. This was something that I thought that she would run up to her bedroom, build and come back within an hour or so holding her creation – I was wrong. Apparently something as important as building your own Lego Dream Home takes planning and research before you can starting building.
So she sat at the dining room table and drew some ideas down of what needed to be included within her Lego Dream Home, from the colour bricks to use to how the house would be used. This is what she came up with…
Roo’s Lego Dream Home
Family car and garage
As we are a family who like to pop in the car and head off on fun family days out it wouldn’t be right for us not to have a family car and garage (to hide away all Daddy’s tools!).
When Roo’s Nanny lived close by she used to love to go into her garden and see if she could find the fairies so she as added her very own Nanny’s garden to the front of her house and hopes that the fairies come to visit.
Helicopter and helipad
Roo is a huge fan of Prince William and Kate Middleton – as William is now based with the East Anglian Air Ambulance she thought she’d better have a helipad just in case they wanted to pop round for a cup of tea and cake.
Swimming pool on the roof
No home would be complete without its own swimming pool, however Roo has opted to place hers on the roof. When I enquired as to why it was on the roof she said that it was closer to the sun and therefore the water would be lovely and warm – can’t argue with that logic.
Penguins in the garden
With Roo’s love of penguins it was only right that she decided to include a penguin pool along with a Mummy and baby penguin. This way she could simply look out the window to see her favourite penguins without having to even get dressed.
