The contrast between the princess and the little man's choice of toys Sunday afternoon was difficult to miss.
The little man asked to play computer and the princess was in a Lego playing mood. Sat next to each other, they were both playing a game which meant using the brain. Might be different parts of the brain but they both used skills. One - the imagination, the other - maths, working out when to jump and where from.
Playing with the same thing too long, too often I think most of us can agree is not the best. Lego though will never get a raised eyebrow if played with every day... Yes, I know Lego is more than imagination, it's developing fine motor skills too.
What am I on about then?? Well, nothing really. Just watching the diglots sitting at the same table, playing with two different things and finding it interesting, the contrast!
