In an attempt to fill a need in this small town in which I live, I started a Lego Club. I am posting activities I have done so that others may benefit. If you start a Lego Club of your own, feel free to share your ideas here. Tell me what worked and what didn’t work.
Times: 1pm – 2:30
Dates: Once a month
Ages: 7 through teen
Fee: $3 per child per meeting to cover costs of materials and snack.
Description: A basic Lego building club that meets once a month with challenge activities each meeting.
