LEGO Discovery Days

June 13th, 2008

Today was the day of the Discovery Days Workshop at the Central Wisconsin Children’s Museum. I had 10 kids and their parents join me today to build a LEGO Picture Frame. As promised, I took pictures of the event and several of the completed projects.

Here is a picture of the build in progress.

I decided to have everyone work on the floor instead of at tables, since I knew the bricks would fall all over the floor anyway. I airbrushed the faces on the picture above because I didn’t ask for permission to post pictures.

See below for more pictures!

Here is a picture of the setup before the kids got started. I brought 30 pounds of bricks including some less common colors like green, orange, lime, and brown.

Finally, here are some of the completed picture frames. I didn’t take pictures of all of them because it took me a couple minutes per frame to put the plastic film, picture, and cardboard backing together (taping each in place).

As you can see from the pictures above, doing this activity two days before Father’s Day provided a theme for most of the kids. A few of the others frames done by younger kids were more abstract.

Overall the project was a success. Several of the parents told me how much they enjoyed the activity and the kids were all very proud of their creations.
