Fun free-for-all during Family Lego Challenge

Those familiar with our Kids @ Work club know that we love playing with Lego at Mentor Public Library.

But it’s usually just kids who get to play, so we thought it would be more fun if the entire family got a chance to break out the blocks.

We had our first Family Lego Challenge on Saturday at our Main Branch. Families used Lego blocks to construct their own family crest and answer mathematical equations. They also competed to see who could build the tallest skyscraper and strongest bridge.

Families even tested their creativity when they were given a bag with 30 randomly chosen Lego blocks and told to build whatever they could imagine.

For more Lego fun, kids from fourth through eighth grade can come to Legomania this Saturday, Aug 9. at our Mentor-on-the-Lake Branch.

Then our Kids @ Work club returns from its summer break on the first Saturday of September.

There aren’t a lot of rules to Kids @ Work. There’s no need to register beforehand and children can build whatever they want with our Lego and Duplo blocks. (However, we do ask that kids younger than 8 have an adult with them; and, as with any library program, we ask that you be kind to the other patrons.)

But, in general, it’s just kids playing with Lego. So if your kid likes building, feel free to bring him or her to Kids @ Work. They will fit right in.
