    Default Lego- what age make following instructions

    Is it 'normal' for a 4yr + 2 month year old to be able to make City Lego suitable for ages 5-12yrs on their own following the instructions?
    My Ds1 couldn't but I'm baffled about how my 4yr old son can. It's amazing.

    My eldest could at about 5.
    My second eldest can do most of it (it's frustration more so than lack of skill that stops him). He's 4.

    ETA: I too am totally wowed by it.

    My dd could, but she has the patience to sit quietly and do these kind of things. I was surprised the first time she did it.

    Isn't it crazy how they can follow those stupid instructions or they just have a natural ability to figure it out? I've got a Star Wars lego thing in my closet that I haven't put together out of frustration for a few years yet my kids just blow through theirs with ease.

    Yes, maybe I should have them do my star wars one but its a matter of pride.

    My dd has just turned 4 last month and has been going solo with the Friends & city sets for awhile now. She loves it (as does this mummy!😁)

    DS has since he was 4 ( now 5) and now does the 7-14 year old ones! ( he can't wipe his bum properly but he can build a space station by himself 🙄)

    DS (5) has been doing Lego by himself since he was around 4. We kind of bypassed the Lego Junior and went straight onto Lego city and Lego Creations. He makes it in no time at all! 😳
