Lego Club -3.27.13

 

Tomorrow is Barnum and Bailey Day, which surprisingly none of our Lego Club members recognized!  Barnum and Bailey works with the Ringling Brothers in the traveling circus!  So today we our inspirations were inspired by the circus.  See if you can spot the tightrope walkers and circus trains and more!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Another season has come and gone which means that we have reached the end of another Lego Club session!  Today marks the end of the winter session and we will be taking a short, two week break before starting up again for our spring session on April 17.  Hope to see you there!  In the meantime, have a wonderful holiday weekend!

Lego Club - 3.20.13

 

About two weeks ago, National Sleep Awareness week was celebrated.  Going along with this theme, we built our own lego versions of what would be included in our dream bedrooms that would help us to sleep better (or maybe not!).  Check out what our  dream rooms include:

Last week was National Agriculture Week across the United States.  If you asked this week's lego club members, they would be able to tell you that agriculture is just a big fancy word for farming!  We dedicated this week's challenge to all things farming, coming up with some pretty cool versions of barns, silos, tractors, and even more surprises.  Check them out below:

Lego Club - 3.6.13

 

This past week, a very popular author's birthday was celebrated across the country (resulting in most, if not all, of his books to be checked out from HTFL!).  This author is none other than Dr. Seuss!  We decided to pay tribute to this fabulous author by building creations inspired by Dr. Seuss' world.  Some of the creations included the thingamajingy used to clean the house from The Cat in the Hat, the Lorax in his element, Dr. Seuss' real initials, and, of course, an appearance from that famous hat.  Check them out below:

Innovative Day was celebrated earlier this month and today in Lego Club, we discussed what it meant to be innovative!  Technically, we're innovative every week we realized as we're constantly creating something new!  We built inventions today, old ones and new ones, that included hotels with every luxury, walking mailboxes, jelly bean machines, and more!
