July 2013 Lego Club Creations


July’s Lego Club had some really amazing creations! This month’s theme was “All About Summer.” With the heat outside, it was lots of fun to cool off indoors with some Lego building time.

Up first was our mini build. The kids all started with the same mini build kit, then built things that they like about summer.

After that we had our challenge build. This month’s challenge was a 2×2 challenge – each kid was given one square base plate and 30 2×2 bricks and built anything they wanted. There were some really inventive results, including some 2-D creations.

Then we had a team build focusing on parks and playhouses. Each table was given a Lego bin and let loose to build based on the theme. Definitely check out all the cool creations!
