Some definite themes are showing through the calendars now, which is not something we have noted in previous years. That is, there has been an overall theme of snow and ice plus Christmas, but not a theme within the larger scene.
Day 14 – half way!
Yes, day fourteen means we’ve done half of our advent calendars and Christmas is getting very close!
To mark this halfway point, the Lego City calendar‘s fourteenth flap revealed a boat… I’m not quite sure how a boat fits into the snow theme unless it is a toy for the snowboarder!
So can you guess what was in the Friends calendar for day fifteen? Yes it was a stand and animal – a cat (or maybe a kitten?) this time – so we really are building up a collection!
The city calendar included a cute little fire truck for my son, which he was quite happy with.
Today, my daughter told me she found a cat, a fish and a horse in her calendar. However, it turned out that the horse was actually from day 22 and had somehow fallen into the day 16 section. So in reality, day sixteen produced a cat and a fish – nothing to create, and a strange arrangement of the fish being larger than the proud cat, kitten, dog and bird already obtained from the calendar. The fish, in fact, is about 2/3 the height of the Lego people!
In the City calendar, my son created a race car – so obviously his theme is vehicles with a train, two planes, a boat, a fire truck and a race car to date.
Have you developed a collection within a set of an advent calendar?
