Beginning Tuesday, the LEGO® Six Brick Challenge will be ready for you at our 2nd floor Children’s Makerspace.
Did you know that six eight-stud (2×4) LEGO® Duplo® bricks can be connected in 915,103,765 different ways!
Using just six LEGO® Duplo® bricks children and students can develop their sensory, physical and social skills in a cost-effective and age-appropriate way here at the library, at home or at school.
Below The LEGO Foundation shares the skills that children practice when they are engaged and challenged in playful ways:
- Language skills: such as describing in rich detail, giving clear instructions, explaining their reasoning, and telling stories, which help to communicate with others and express their ideas
- Problem solving skills: staying focused, remembering a task or a challenge, setting goals and making plans, coming up with creative ideas, and reflecting on what they did and how they did it
- Collaboration skills: as in working together in pairs or teams, sharing turns and the materials they are working with, learning from peers and their ideas, and giving one another roles and responsibilities
Building blocks build futures!
Are you ready for your child’s imagination to take off?
The LEGO® Six Brick Challenge will be available just for a limited time. It will soon be replaced by our 2nd Annual Loom Knit- It Makerspace! Finished knit hats will be donated to help in our community.
Don’t forget-our Guild of the Brick program is Saturday, November 12th from 2–4 p.m!
