While on vaca­tion in Vir­ginia with the kids, I took them to the LEGO store at Tyson’s Cor­ner in McLean, Vir­ginia. When we were check­ing out with their new LEGO sets to make at their grand­par­ents’ house (a good activ­i­ty when the pow­er goes out dur­ing the numer­ous thun­der­storms), I spied this box of LEGO tulips!!!

LEGO Tulips

This LEGO tulips design set is one of a few plant themed designs that are cur­rent­ly avail­able. Pho­to by Kit Wertz.

The kids and I took turns mak­ing each tulip and we were done lick­et­ly split so we had fun dis­play­ing them around the house and even inside a fresh design on the kitchen table.

My son Cole thought it would be fun to make a “buzzing bee” out of LEGOs to go on a tulip and here is what he came up with that I thought was real­ly cute, too!.

We have our own LEGO flower kits that we cre­at­ed last sum­mer as part of our Online Liv­ing Art Camp sets. Each week we fea­tured a dif­fer­ent theme through the sum­mer of 2020 for those kids who could not attend in-per­son camps due to Covid-19 restric­tions. Our LEGO camp was super pop­u­lar and used a com­bi­na­tion of fresh flow­ers and LEGOs to cre­ate fun designs.
