LEGO Minifig Summer Fun Writing Prompts - Free Download

 

Free LEGO Minifig Writing Prompt Download - Summer Fun

It's been too long since I've offered a free LEGO Minifig writing prompt download!

As my son has been happily absorbed in his LEGO bricks again this week, I was motivated to give him some writing prompts for summer.
