Mum Makes Giant Lego Model Of Harry Potter's Hogwarts

Check out mum's amazing Lego model of Harry Potter's Hogwarts

While most mums spend their days picking Lego pieces out of the soles of their feet (owww!) and the furthest possible part of the vacuum cleaner, Alice Finch gets a bit more creative.

A lot more creative in fact, as the talented mum of two has built a staggering 13ft by 13ft replica of Harry Potter's Hogwarts entirely out of the coloured bricks.

Alice used a whopping 400,000 pieces of Lego to make her amazing model – somewhat more than the official Hogwarts Lego kit which uses just 1,290.

The replica took Alice an entire year to construct and earned her a Best in Show accolade at a recent Lego awards ceremony.

The 38-year-old admits it wasn't all child's play making the building though as her fingers paid the price for the fiddly work.

"It sounds odd to say 'Lego-related injuries' but I've worn off my fingerprints several times," she told the Sun.

Alice keeps her amazing model at her home in Seattle - and no doubt totally off limits to her two kids!
