January 2014 Lego Club Creations


Inventing and Engineering was the theme of our January 2014 Lego Club, and the kids showed their skills in their creations.

For our mini builds, we celebrated both Lego’s birthday and National Candy Month. Kids were encouraged to build something to celebrate Lego’s birthday, or to make their favorite candy. There were lots of yummy builds!

For our challenge build, the kids were Lego engineers tasked with building a tool or usable object, either real or imagined. From hammers to robots, we had a great variety.

And for our theme build the kids continued their engineering and were told to build a structure or create a surface. We saw everything from landmarks like pyramids to super tall office buildings, houses, and a beautiful waterfall.

As usual, it was a really great meeting and lots of fun for all!
