Lego Jack on a Ledge {A Halloween Game}

I made up a fun little Lego Halloween Game you can play with your kids! Whoot whoot!  My kids are loving it, and I am loving it too! It makes me happy to think up something original for my kids that they love-especially since I feel like Pinterest has zapped my creativity.{Anyone else feel like that- seeing all that creativity makes me feel very uncreative....} Well I think I might still have a little bit left...somewhere. this is a fun game you can play all month long- using a Lego Jack-O-Lantern that you make. {Think a little bit of Elf-on-a-Shelf- but for Halloween} instructions below 

Here is how you play:

Lego Jack on a Ledge {A Halloween Game}
1. Build a Jack-O-Lantern pumpkin from your legos. Make sure the mouth is made of small enough pieces so that they can be moved. We used legos that were 1x2 or 1x3 for the mouth.
2. Hide Lego Jack on a ledge somewhere in the house- we put it in plain sight- not hidden out of sight.
3. Each morning the children look for Lego Jack. The person who finds him gets to change his mouth to a different shape. (see photos above)
4. Hide Lego Jack again and do it the next day.
The kids LOVE this game! It is really fun because they get a kick out of getting to change the mouth shape! Plus - they can really come up with some great shapes!

Happy Halloween!
p.s....this is my 900th post! Is anyone still reading this blog? Blogging isn't what it used to be... I miss that time-back when it was a lot more interactive-with comments, connecting with other bloggers, etc. Now if I want to do that, it is like having another job. Well I'm still here. And I'm still trying to post a little. So thanks- Thanks for reading this little blog. And especially thanks to those who have left kind supportive comments over the past 900 posts!

I'm coming out of hiding to tell you that, yes, I am still here and still reading through my Google Reader! And following you on Pinterest too. :) Happy 900th!

By the way, I also agree with the change in the bloggy world. Less comments because we're all sidetracked by Facebook and Pinterest and Instagram and whatnot. But I'll still be blogging because it's a gift I'm giving to my kids one day.
