‘ULTIMATE LEGO CHALLENGE’ (Grades 1-5): Join us on Thursday, April 30, 6:30pm-7:30pm: to participate in the ultimate Lego challenge. We’ll build each challenge individually and then spend the second half of the evening building a group project.
Why use LEGOs? LEGO provides a unique building system that encourages children to give form and expression to their own imagination. The system offers endless possibilities but at the same time, not anything goes! The bricks have a “mind of their own”, that the child learns to compose with to achieve their creations. They are fun play materials that let you create at different levels and you can continually add to each creation. Children can build whatever is in their imagination and bring it to life through play. The children can build on their own ideas by seeing what others make for each challenge. Play and learn with us on April 30th!
