August 2013 Lego Club Creations


We all had a great time at August’s Lego Club. Our theme this month was Aquatic Life/Ships & Boats, and the kids built some amazing creations!

As usual, each kid started with the same mini build kit, and then built based on that theme. After that, we had our Challenge Build. This month we did a 2-4-6-8 challenge. All of our bricks were divisible by 2. The kids received identical kits of bricks:

  • 16   2×1 bricks
  • 10   2×2 bricks
  • 14   2×3 bricks
  • 12   2×4 bricks
  •   2   2×6 bricks
  •   2   2×8 bricks

The kids were told to create anything they wanted, but only using the even-numbered bricks. They all made some amazing builds!

One of the parents put together a short Power Point on ships and boats that we watched before we started our Theme Build. The kids could work independently or together to create their ships and boats. We had all kinds of shapes and sizes of boats, from small motor boats to a model of the Titanic!
