"Lego Guy" shares his passion with kids

Kids got the chance to build their own race cars. Kids got the chance to build their own race cars.

Everyone has their own ways to relax and for Pat Amundson, that's working with Lego pieces. 

He started building Lego structures in 1998 after his grandmother died because he missed her house and wanted to re-create it.

Now, Amundson, who's known as the "Lego Guy" is sharing his passion with others.

Saturday, he hosted a class about Lego building at the South Sioux City, Nebraska Public Library.

Kids had the chance to create their own race car's and see how far they would go.

"It's rewarding to see them smile and talk and pick through the pieces of Legos to try to design a special car. And, I think it creates their imagination, it sparks their imagination to dream and make it a reality by using legos," Amundson said.

Many of Amundson's own Lego buildings are on display at the library this month.

He said they're there to promote a Lego building competition that will be held February 22 at the library. Amundson will hold a class that same day at 1:00p.m., and the contest will follow at 2:30p.m.
