November 2013 Lego Club Creations


Our November meeting celebrated both Thanksgiving and National Aviation Month.  The kids made an interesting array of flying vehicles that they would like to fly, and some very nice looking Thanksgiving tables for eating great foods!

For our mini build, we asked the kids to build something that said “Thanksgiving” to them – a turkey, a table laden with food, something they were thankful for.  Some kids decided to get started on their flying vehicles, which made for an interesting collection of creations!

The challenge build was to create a flying vehicle, and we saw helicopters, quadcopters, airplanes, flying houses, airplanes, space craft and more.  A few of the flying creations evolved into driving vehicles (all terrain vehicles were quite popular).  We put up the ramps to test out the driving and flying abilities.  We found that some of the flying vehicles “flew” pretty well going up the ramps, while others broke apart quite easily.
