Homeschool Lego Club
We found a local, classical education homeschool group where a Mom was starting up a Lego club! My 11 year old and my 4 year old joined. So sweet that they have this special hobby to share.
The group meets once a month. This very organized lady held her first meeting today. She had the kids bring their own lego creation to show the others. I was, as always, impressed with the eloquence of homeschoolers. My 4 year old, who has never participated in a "class", charmed me so by following every direction, raising her hand, excitedly participating in the speaking in front of the group as the oganizing mom even asked questions!
Then our hostess held a challenge for teams. (My 4 year old was not at all disturbed being on a different team than her brother!) Each team was to make a lego boat capable of floating and the boat to hold the most pennies before sinking would obviously have the best design.
Afterwards, our organizer served a homemade lego cake. Those are marshmellows on the top! How clever.
Finally, it was creative building time as buckets of legos were poured on the floor for young minds to play with as they wished.
Looking forward to next month!
