         LEGO CLUBLOGO
Lego Club is all about letting your imagination go wild and building with friends. Everyone knows that using Lego is tons of fun, but did you know the process of inventing, designing and creating Lego structures can also help develop important motor and critical thinking skills? Your child will be learning and playing at the same time, it's win-win!

 

 
Upcoming Lego Club Meetings
We provide the Lego and you provide the ideas. This drop-in program runs in the Studio every 1st & 3rd Wednesday of the month. Keep checking back here for upcoming dates. Each entry contains the dates for one month (usually 2 per month).
