This is it for 2013, folks!  To celebrate the culmination of another session of Lego Club as well as the holiday of Celebrating Your Unique Talent (11/24), today's theme was to showcase the lego building skills that everyone has by building whatever drove their imagination!  Check out all the unique creations below: 










































































































































Lego Club will be back in session starting January 15, 2014 - same day, same time, same place!  In the meantime, come check out our variety of winter programming during the month of December.  The frontpage of our website has all the details or ask for a flyer at the Children's Room desk!  

Happy Holidays everyone!

Lego Club - 11.6.13


There are only two more weeks of the Fall 2013 lego club left to go!  Today we not only took inspiration from the monthly holiday of Military Family Appreciation Month, but also looked ahead to next week's celebration of Veterans' Day for our challenge this week.  Lego Club members were tasked with building creations that were inspired by the military.  Check out what they worked so hard on below:
























































































And for all you Lego Lovers out there, there's a Philly Brick Fest Lego Fan Festival coming to town at the end of April!  There's currently a deal on Amazon Local for it, making tickets cost only $20, down from almost $40.  There's about a week left to order, but better to get them before they sell out!  

See everyone next week!

This week, we fittingly celebrated Halloween by building our own spooky creations.  From haunted houses to scary ghosts boats to creepy laboratories, you can find them all here below!






















































































































































Hope this got everyone in the spirit of Halloween!  Have a happy Halloween and be safe while trick or treating!
