Yay! Another Lego activity for history! We built a labyrinth after reading about Theseus and the Minotaur in SOTW chapter eighteen.
Okay, so I’ve heard of a Minotaur but didn’t know the story. He’s supposed to be half man, half bull. The closest we had was a gorilla.
Here’s Theseus complete with a weapon. He’s got his string to help him find his way back out of the maze after he defeats the Minotaur.
Here is the rope tied to a Lego brick so that he can find his way out again. Not that our maze was all that complicated. :)
And here’s Ladybug working on her maze. Complete with wet hair. She hasn’t shown too much interest in Lego but she loved building her own little maze. She insisted on taking it to her room to work on during our afternoon rest time. (aka Mama-needs-a-break-time.)
We found a couple of readers at the library that tell the story too, which Skeeterbug was happy to read. This is the kind of story that will keep an 8yo boy interested!
