“Leg-Oh” by Kids Corner CT
Saturday July 15th 10:30am-noon

Kid's Corner Lego activity creates fun learning for Kids

Build things, over-and-over! Lego has become much more sophisticated over the last 20 years, and for many children, even more fun. Children learn about volume, support, and aesthetics.

For aspiring young architects, crafts-persons, engineers, Lego sets are the building blocks (literally) to scientific success. Children collaborate on one large standing project, while working on their own individual creations.
