April Lego 2016: Minions

Google’s definition of minion: “A follower or underling of a powerful person, especially a servile or unimportant one.”

Everyone had a blast creating something ‘Minion’ themed. Even the parents got involved!


Here are the pictures from our Spring Lego Club in March. Everyone who created something that tied into spring had their creation displayed in our cabinet for the month.

The theme for this month was: Bridge Building Challenge. We had a great group and a lot of fun, but not many bridges were built (unless you count making new friends and working together…which I do!)

Here’s a look at what the group created.

(Apologies for blurry pictures. My camera is still causing trouble.)

So sorry for not getting these photos up sooner. I was having issues logging into my blog. It looks like all is running smoothly again, which means you can now see all the marvelous creations the kids made last November and December.

November Theme:  Just Joking

October’s Lego Builders group was great! It was fun to see all the kids and parents interacting and playing so well. Some builders were inspired by the Zombie Attack theme, while others’ followed a different creative muse. Everyone built amazing creations. Sadly, due to technical difficulties with my camera, I was unable to post everyone’s creation. Here are the pictures that worked out:
