Fantastic ideas; I'll keep this thread in mind if I wind up with kids in the house needing entertained! (We had an unexpected one a couple of weeks ago, but alas, the attic Lego isn't very practical to get at right now! Nextflix Kids stepped into the breach, but it's nicer to be able to give them activities and ways to create...)
Suddenly realised I'd better hurry up and acquire the minifigures I have Christmas gift plans for, so I've put up a thread in the Marketplace.
I also really want to build again, but for that I'll have to fight my way through the boxes from the Great Sort-Out in my office to get to the wardrobe where I put unopened sets. Well, at least that's motivation, right?
Still catching up on 2017 sets! I would really like to get the Ninjago movie temple and the heavy assault walker, but it's going to depend on whether I find really good offers. Also, if it's out in 2018, the Ideas ship in a bottle. Mercifully I'm not seeing a lot of must-have sets, so far.
