This one was a lot of fun!!  Kids kept talking about how they've never done this before, so it really was a great challenge for them. I set up the room with my 6 tables as usual and taped up about 3 of the big baseplates per table.  Two big pieces of duct tape did... Continue Reading →

This is the first time that I changed the theme AFTER the challenge was already over.  After we did rules, I explained that the theme was "Giant Monsters," so kids would make a giant version of a monster, animal, or pet to destroy buildings.  Kids were happy with that idea, but they didn't seem as...

Whenever possible, I try to make whatever we build in Lego Club interactive and social, since that's what's going keep kids coming back.  We've made slides we could all race cars down, we've done scavenger hunts, and we've done obstacle courses.  So this was a great idea I got from Destination Storytime that's really interactive...

This one would be really easy to replicate if you're looking for ideas!!  After sitting everyone down and talking about our rules, I told everyone that our theme was "Rebuilding our Town."  I asked the kids for some of the buildings they recognized around town.  After that, I told that each out of our 6...

This one turned out pretty interesting.  After setup and rules, I introduced our theme as "Secret Zoo."  It's kind of a twist on a Lego Challenge I did a few months ago called "Scavenger Hunt."  So the idea here was that kids were going to build a zoo exhibit.  They needed to have an animal...

Lego Club--if you don't have one, start one now.  Having a Lego Club is such an amazing way to get kids into the library again and again.  And after the initial investment, it's basically a no cost program that's more or less guaranteed to bring in kids every time.  I initially modeled my Lego Club...

Go Lego Go!!  This one is a favorite for my kiddos because it's definitely not something you do everyday.  After I explained the rules of Lego Club, I told them the day's challenge.  They first had to build a car, plane, boat, carplane, boatcar, or any other combination.  But they had to work into their...
