Dogs on skateboards and ice cream trucks – just some of the wonderful creations children have been building at a new Lego club in Kidderminster.
The free club runs each Saturday morning at Kidderminster Library and it offers far more than just chance to build with bricks.
Lego is a fantastic tool in developing children’s abilities in STEM subjects (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) and the group sessions also build children’s confidence and social skills.
The sessions are open to children from aged 5 upwards and are held in a fun, safe and relaxed environment.
The first two clubs proved a great success with the children and their adults designing wonderful builds and having fun while they learnt.
There are plans for some fun challenges in the coming weeks, including building a bridge to hold a can of beans!
Worcestershire County Councillor Lucy Hodgson, Cabinet Member with Responsibility for Communities said; “Our wonderful libraries are not just about loaning books, they offer so many experiences and opportunities. The Lego club is a super way to encourage children and their families to use our services and learn at the same time. “
The Lego club is at Kidderminster Library each Saturday morning from 10-11.30am. It’s free entry.
