Home School LEGO® Days
During the School Year, Every Monday is LEGO
Join us on Mondays for LEGO DAY for Home Schooled children. Take advantage of this opportunity to use LEGO® building as a way to teach building techniques, structure, logic, or any of a number of other things, or just to play!
A $5.00 fee per child provides you with access to our event/party room, Bulk LEGO bricks to work with and even access to our Race Track for building and racing your own LEGO Race Cars!
Recommended age of 5 years old and up.
Each session starts at 10:30 am and lasts until Noon. Please complete all your activities by 12:15 so we can clean up in case we have a party scheduled for the afternoon.
Make a day of it!
Consider starting with donuts from Bigfoot's Little Donuts in the same shopping center with us, then stay for lunch. We will have coffee available for parents. You can sit and talk, read, listen to music, etc. while your children play.
There are a number of restaurants nearby where you can go for lunch including Lucky Dice Cafe just a few doors down. Or, if you prefer, you can bring a lunch and eat in our event room after we have gathered up the LEGO items.
Note: Parents will need to stay with their children or have another parent responsible. Children are to remain in the party room during the event except for bathroom breaks. You may be required to sign a waiver regarding the possibility of a choking hazard for small children.
There is no planned lesson material for these sessions at this time. We are now planning an educational session for each Home School Day!
We will begin to have short educational lessons about LEGO® and different types of elements used in LEGO. These will include names of the various types of LEGO bricks, how to use them, as well as introductions to advanced parts like hinges, motors and more! We'll try to have something new every week!
If you would like to take the opportunity to apply lessons in physics, logic, gravity, etc., feel free to plan your own curriculum around the LEGO® materials. You can use this as a teaching opportunity, a change of pace for the children, an outing, an adventure, or just fun time. It seems to be a welcomed option for those who have attended.
Use this opportunity as an extension to your school lessons or just a break from the norm with a productive process to keep their minds working. Building with LEGO bricks stimulates the mind and encourages creativity!
You can reserve a space for any Monday for the next three months, or every Monday, at the link below. Please arrive on time and pay for your participant(s) upon arrival at the store. Thanks!
