day 16

It’s Friday and day 16…

2016 Lego Christmas Advent Calendars

Ok, it is actually Saturday morning but I am sharing the Lego advent calendars fro Fridday as we lost power last night and I couldn’t access the internet to post this.

Again, my daughter was questioning the Christmas aspect of the Friends calendar so I am trying to explain that not everything in an advent calendar has to actually be about Christmas. But given her enjoyment of making things, she was very happy to put together a craft table and glue bottle.

My son found a plane in the Lego City calendar. I wondered if it would turn out to be a shuttle and part of a rocket (as happened last year) but we’ll have to wait until tonight to find out!

If you have enjoyed reading about day 16, you can go back to day one or even read the 2015 day 15 Lego advent calendar review.

So, moving onto day sixteen of the Christmas count down!

The Lego city advent calendar opened onto a policeman tonight, much to my son’s delight – “that’s part of my police set in the calendar!”

This is how the Lego is presented most days…

“And yours is part of your café theme – you’re getting quite a big café together now!” he told his sister after she found a sweets display stand in her Lego Friends calendar. It is basically a small table with a multi-layered cake and a lollipop on it.

Special treats – cakes, lollipops!

And I must say that it finally registered to me tonight that the ‘ice-cream stall’ was actually a cake stall – the little ice-creams are actually cupcakes! And if you add that stall with the oven, mugs and tonight’s display, it is adding up to a little café which makes perfect sense for skiers and skaters!

If you missed what the calendars gave us yesterday, you can catch up on day fifteen. Read the introduction to our Lego advent reviews for the whole picture.
