Program 33: Harry Potter + a cool giveaway!

We had a great Builders Brigade session yesterday! My theme for the day was Harry Potter, and for a very special reason…I had some terrific Harry Potter giveaways! Thanks to a donation from our teen librarian, I had 2 Nintendo DS Lego Harry Potter games to give away. Congrats to both Anthony and Raphael for winning the nifty door prizes :)

Program 32: Food…yum!

Having just attended a lovely picnic on July 4th, I had yummy food on my mind. Hence, our theme for today’s builders:  FOOD. I provided a few sample pictures for inspiration, and then our young builders went crazy with their own creations :)

Program 31: Summer vacation!!!

In Cheshire, yesterday was our last day of school…so today was officially the first full day of summer vacation! Yay!!  In honor of the new-found freedom, I let our builders have a free build day with no themes – they could build anything their heart’s desired :)

Program 30: For our Dads…

Since Father’s Day is this weekend, I thought it would be fun to ask our builders to do Projects for Dad. Dads like Star Wars and battles too, right? :) . . .

 

 

Program 29: Robots

Since our summer reading theme is “Fizz, Boom, Read” and because a lot of our science events will be science-themed, I thought it would be fun to revisit our ROBOTS theme for building today. We had some fabulous projects from some very creative builders today :)

Program 28: Free Build!

With all of the lovely weather we’ve been having lately – and the standardized testing in the schools – I thought it was time for another Free Build program for our young builders :)  We had several eager builders who even submitted several projects in one hour!

Program 27: Buildings & Structures

Despite the Spring weather we had an amazing turnout for our Builders Brigade program yesterday!  So many new faces – even a visiting young builder from Syracuse, NY!  Our theme was Buildings and Structures, and we got an incredible mix of creativity from our building crew :)
