It’s summer, it’s hot, and there’s only so much time anyone can spend at the pool or the beach.  So, if your kids are like mine, sometimes you need at least a little bit of screen-time to restore everyone’s sanity.

With that in mind, here are a couple of great LEGO sites sure to entertain both kids and adults.  Watch ‘em with the kids; chilled juice boxes for everyone!

First, LEGO356 (AKA A LEGO a Day).  This is the project of Dan, a teacher, photographer, and LEGO enthusiast.  As he explains, he took a photo everyday with a LEGO mini-figure.  His blog chronicles this great project, and is sure to elicit a chuckle from grown-ups and a chorus of “Cool!” from the kids.  The blog will be complete on July 31, 2011, so be sure to visit before the end of the month…and then to re-visit afterwards!

Also, this Yahoo article features some other great projects made out of LEGO.  As always, this amazing stuff begs the question: where DO people find the time to do this type of thing?!?!  But, we’re all too happy to check it out!
