Kids need to play outside a lot more. Imagination is everything for young minds. Getting young kids interested in outdoor activites from an early age is key. A great way to get kids thinking about kayaking, LEGO's. Yes, they make kayak kits.
The Lego City Mini Figure Coast Guard Kayak Set #5621 is about $20 on Amazon. The kit has everything a young child (or adult) needs to assemble a kayaker, complete with paddle, lifejacket and helmet. It even floats since air is trapped in the hollow bricks.The colorful rectangular LEGO bricks have retained their popularity over 50 years. In 2000, LEGO was named "Toy of the Century" by Fortune magazine. A child can easily take apart the gripping plastic bricks and put them back together in a countless variety of different configurations.
The bricks produced today can interlock with those produced back in 1958. A prolific manufacturing facility in Denmark kicks out 15 billion components a year. For kids that are very small, LEGO developed slightly larger DUPLO bricks. Who knew injection-molded acrylonitrile butadiene styrene would be so fun ! Lego is a contraction of the Danish words leg godt, or play well. It can also be construed to mean "I put together" in Latin.
