Make Cute Animals with Lego: Lego Farm, Lego Circus and Lego Africa

We’ve added more Lego instructions to the Lego Instructions app. Now it has instructions for Lego farm set with the animals like a pig, ram and sheep; Lego circus set with funny clowns and poodles; and some more instructions for African animals: an elephant, giraffe, hippo and tropical birds.

Lego is a fun game for boys, girls and small children. Some fantasy – and using simple Lego bricks we can collect figures of people and animals. No kid will stay indifferent to a small cute dog or funny sheep into which common plastic bricks turn. New instructions included to the app will be especially useful for the beginners and parents with small children. Also, many of these animals are easy to do and they don’t require any special parts or bricks.

You can use these simple and easy Lego toys to play with your kid. While building these animals, small children can learn their names or the places where they live. For example, you can make up a story about animals that live in Africa or ask your kid to make up a story about animals that live in a farm. This will serve two purposes at a time – your kid will have fun and learn something new. Take a Lego animal and ask your kid: Do you know what animal is this? – Yes, it’s sheep. And what sound does it make? – It bleats. -Yes, that’s right…

Such games are very useful because children learn something new better while they play.
