Did you know there’s now a Lego Club at Pimlico Library?
The first of the monthly Saturday sessions was at the end of September. Once we’d decided to set up the club, we put out a call for any unwanted lego. To start with, there were no donations and we wondered if that might be the end of the idea! But in the end a very generous customer and a member of staff at another Westminster library saved the day – Lego Club was on.
Like any good club, there are proper membership cards and a few rules, such as:
- Respect others’ creations
- Help tidy up at the end
- Have fun!
Each session has a theme and this one was ‘Robots’, which went down a treat. Future planned themes are ‘They came from Outer Space’ and ‘Mad Inventors’. There was some initial discussion, a good chunk of build time and a show & tell of creations at the end.
The kids, parents and I had a great time. They were engaged and had fun. They also loved the idea that there would be a display of their creations, for themselves and other children to see what they had made. So if you like the sound of Lego Club and your children are aged between 5 and 11, we’ll see you on Saturday 22 October at 10.30am!
