With the weather being so nice, I felt a theme of Parks & Recreation was perfect :) See if you can spot the project done by one of our regular moms in the pictures below!
As you may have noticed, I was out sick for our last program :( But a big ‘thank you’ to Sue and her assistant for the day, Mike, who stepped in to run our Builders Brigade program for the day. And from the looks of things, we had some new faces and some very creative projects. Nicely done, builders! I’m really looking forward to seeing you at our next program on April 9th :)
Winter refuses to leave us, but we all stayed warm and cozy inside the library during today’s program. Our theme was Super Villains, like President Businessman from the recent Lego Movie. Kids could pick the villain of their choice and create his/her hideout, vehicle, and more. As always, some kids chose to do building with their own theme in mind…and that’s always fine by me :)
Seems like there’s no end to the snow and ice for us this winter. Despite the icy roads, we had about 84 people come to Wednesdays program! It was a really fun, jovial sort of chaos here at the library with parents and kids all down on the floor creating masterpieces together. Our theme for the day was Awesome Spaceships, and a lot of our kids were definitely on board with the subject. We also had part 2 of a giveaway that I had planned for just before the Lego Movie opened in theaters. The original giveaway date was pretty much snowed out (even though we had 10 kids brave the storm to come in for building). But I’m happy to report that we had just enough treats leftover for the kids that came to this week’s program – every kid received a mystery minifigure pack to take home for their own personal Lego collections :) I’m in love with the projects our crew created this week…

Are you super excited about the LEGO movie opening this week? ME TOO. Here’s a great article from whatculture.com called “8 Reasons Why the Lego Movie Will Be Awesome.” Enjoy!
Despite the terrible winter weather, we still had 11 kids and their families show up for our Builders Brigade program today! And since this program is just a few days before the release of the first ever feature-length LEGO movie in theaters, I thought a special giveaway was in order. Each builder received a free minifigure in a mystery pack to take home :)
And don’t worry – if you weren’t able to come today, I’ll be giving out the remainder of the minifigures at our next program on February 19th!
There was no special theme today – it was just a free-build hour. Check out the fun projects from our builders below…
