Lego Eiffel Tower

When I saw this post from Homegrown Learners website I couldn't wait to give that activity to Eaton. I wasn't sure if he will be interested at this point but I gave it a try. I did print out only 2 landmarks for Eaton at this point. Eifel Tower was my first choice.
When I shown Eaton that picture and ask if he wants to create it using Lego there were 30 seconds moment of silent. He was looking at this picture and I assume he already started to visualize how he can do it. After about half of the minute I asked him again. He said yes. 
 He went to Lego table and started to build. He asked me not to look. I sat down close to him. I was separating Lego pieces and Eaton was building Eifel Tower. It was great 40 minutes to watch him being so focus on the project. I really love that part of him. 
At certain point his Eifel Tower wasn't strong enough, it was collapsing each time he wanted to put pieces on top of it. I thought he would get frustrated and walk away. I did offer my help that was rejected immediately;-) He did work on it for a little bit longer and said proudly that he figure it out. OOO how much Eaton was proud of himself when he was done. He loved that project and said he want's more. We have enough Legos, so why not:)

Daddy was proud of his son's work :)
That was very creative day.
