Who doesn’t love legos? These popular building bricks have become a staple childhood plaything in most homes. If you have young children, chances are your house is right in the middle of the lego-mania years, with entire spaces dedicated to various colored brick construction sites! If your house is anything like ours, you have bins of unloved legos, stacked in the dark recesses of your playroom. They were expensive, so I just can’t justify getting rid of them, but the kids don’t really play them much these days. Luckily, some super-smart folks have provided an educational use for all those lonely legos!
