Beat the brain drain of the summer school holidays

The summer school holidays are almost upon us. Six weeks of trying to keep the kids entertained and happy. But before you start racking your brain to think of some new and exciting school holiday activities, I have some exciting news.

BRICKS 4 KIDZ® has arrived in Australia where kids can build, play and learn with LEGO® bricks.

Although kids already know how to build with LEGO, BRICKS 4 KIDZ provide coaching and the opportunity to learn about science, technology, engineering and maths concepts, using specialised components. They believe in the philosophy of kids retaining more of what they learn when lessons are related to something they enjoy, like building with LEGO.
Fun LEGO  fact #1** – The brand name LEGO was created by using the first two letters of the Danish words “Leg” and “Godt,” meaning “play well.”

 

BRICKS 4 KIDZ are offering December and January school holiday workshops  in many areas around Australia.
Programs are run Monday to Friday and are either one day or two day workshops. The themes for the workshops will include:

 Mining and Crafting
 Space Adventures
 Amusement Park Mayhem
 Super Heroes
 Animal Grossology*** – where science isn’t always neat & tidy, sometimes if is just “gross”
 
At the workshops children will work in small groups to build projects using specially created BRICKS 4 KIDZ models.  Children will work and play with designated LEGO  Technic pieces such as gears, axles, electric motors and more. There are also unique games and LEGO challenges and plenty of time for free play.

FUN LEGO fact #2 – Did you know that you can combine six pieces of the eight studded LEGO bricks in 915,103,765 ways?

The school holiday programs are designed for kids aged 5 – 12 years and are staffed by trained BRICKS 4 KIDZ instructors. For full details, including program locations and times, see the website.

FUN LEGO fact #3 – A real house has been built with LEGO. James May constructed the world’s first full size LEGO house in Britain in 2009. The house contained a working toilet and shower and a bed and was made out 3.3 million LEGO bricks.

Places at the school holiday workshops will fill up fast, so make sure you book early and beat the brain drain of the summer school holidays with some brick building fun.

***I’ll admit I had no idea what “Animal Grossology” referred to and had to consult Professor Google to explain it to me.
