It's a lot of fun for us, too, which is why we sometimes find ourselves gluing together paper fish or coloring inside the lines even after the kids turn in for the night.

Guess I'm not the only one. Christopher Neimann has some excellent fun with Legos and NYC on his NY Times blog Abstract City. Some of my favorites:
