Lego Fish Bowl

Ok, this has nothing to do with Soleful Suitcases, but it is fun and I wanted to put it up here. My oldest son loves Lego, and yesterday we finished up a project I'd been thinking about for a couple weeks. It turned out pretty great I think.

I used a fish bowl, just the plain clear glass goldfish kind. I created a base for the inside using clear 1x2 bricks and 1x2 clear plates to make it sturdy. Then I added the fish (a creator set), the shark (made from LEGOLAND in Kansas City or use this one), and the turtle (made at a mini monthly build). The 'gravel' on the bottom is just little pieces that we grabbed from the Pick-A-Brick wall at our local Lego store.

My son loves it. It is in his room, and he likes having a 'pet' all his own in his room. My youngest boy loves it because he thinks they are real fish, and can stare at them for a while before getting bored. It is a win-win.

If you'd like to see more Lego stuff, head over to my facebook page, Moms of Lego. You'll find event postings, cartoon listings, great deals from Amazon and, and more.

And if you're new to Soleful Suitcases and you ended up here randomly, please feel free to poke around. My kids like Lego, and I am happy to support them with it. Another thing we as a family all like is to travel. So, like anything they do, I'm trying to teach my kids that traveling doesn't just have to be about them. It is okay to give back to the local population too, and our Soleful Suitcases project is just that; giving back to the local population one pair of shoes at a time.

Share your shoes, share your love, share your world. 

If you'd like to donate to Soleful Suitcases and our upcoming trip in July 2013, there are several ways to help. You can donate your in-good-shape, still life left, adult athletic shoes. You can donate brand new adult socks. School supplies are always welcome. Shop on Amazon via the link on the right hand size so we get credit to help pay for baggage fees. Or donate to our GoFundMe site at   twitter @RunningWithHart
