Think this is going to be a good one that kids will enjoy. Was thinking about the Goldilocks house (like we all do) and thought about that the bears must have three of everything, right?? Not just beds, bowls, and chairs. Three of every object imaginable. So, that's what we are building today. So after... Continue Reading →

People have often asked if I have ever done a Lego Club just for adults. Never have, but this might be a PERFECT challenge for them. I thought of this idea while I was shoveling snow this week. I slipped and fell on some ice last year, so was thinking of bad things to step... Continue Reading →

Have a BUNCH of new ideas coming at you over the next couple of days and weeks. Gonna start with a little bit of a crazy one for Lego Club. Like I said in my Lego Club management post here, I always take photos at the end of Lego Club with my kiddos and what... Continue Reading →

This one came to me a little randomly. I often ask kiddos to make 3 or 4 panel comics as one of the learning activities for our Summer Learning Program. Comics are an easy way to both tell a story and exercise your artistic muscles. As I'm sure you know, kids love telling stories with... Continue Reading →

It's been awhile, but I have a new Lego challenge idea! Was looking through my old challenges and came up with an idea similar to my Monster Mash-Up challenge I did a few years back. So this idea is about building a Mirror World! So you'd build one half of a car, or an animal,... Continue Reading →

Our summer reading has kicked off at our library, and like many others, we've chosen the CSLP theme of "Imagine Your Story," which celebrates fairy tales and fantasy books.  So this whole month, I've been using fairy tales for an inspiration to Lego Club.  Each build is broken into two parts.  For the first part,...

Step right up!!  This is one I've wanted to do for awhile!  I saw this post a long time ago about building a Lego target practice game.  I really liked that idea but wanted to build on it, so I came up with the idea of just building a BUNCH of different carnival games! So... Continue Reading →

Such an easy concept, but this one can get a little complicated fast.  I came up with this idea while looking out at my yard.  We have to take some trees out, and I instantly thought of tree forts.  I thought it would be really simple to build, but once I got started building my...

Another day, another Lego challenge!  This one is obviously a good one to do at home, but I can see this one definitely working for a traditional library Lego Club.  The only thing special you need is a big Lego baseplate.  The bigger, the better--if you don't have one, you can do your best to...

For this at-home challenge, I combined one of my first challenges (Lego Challenge–Prison Break) and one of my latest challenges (Lego Challenge–Minifig Adventure Photos.)  In the Prison Break challenge, kids had to come up with a way, real or imaginary, to escape a large box.  This has the same feel, but this kinda opens up...
