August 2015 Lego Club Creations


2015-08-03 10.04.41

Monday we jumped back in to Lego Club and all kinds of awesome creations! While on break, we added some new specialty pieces to the bins, and also bought some simple machines project kits. The kids really enjoyed exploring the new bricks and sets!

For our mini build, we had some August themes: Family Fun Month, Watermelon Day, Waffle Day, S’Mores Day, Sand Castle Day, Perseid Meteor Shower, and the monarch butterfly migration. We saw a variety of creative builds from those themes. Our challenge build was mazes and machines. Kids were encouraged to build a maze and run a nano bug through it, while some of the older kids started on our year-long exploration of the simple machines project kits. We also had a great time with free building. The kids were so busy building and re-building that we only have a few pictures. Take a look at some of what the kids created!
