Micro-Build with LEGO Bricks! Ages 6-12

Study the effect of scale with a teeny tiny microbuild.  Using just a few pieces, the participant will create tiny vehicles and a tiny building.  LEGO minifigs are giants in this realm!  Includes a take home vehicle and building kit.

Note from Trish: This is going to be so much fun!  In addition to a tiny automobile and a tiny plane... there will be a group build of a micro-building.

I have found an image of a building that is multi-story and very unusual in shape.  The participants will each use the building for inspiration, and create some part of the building - they will adjust the colors to their own tastes.  The tricky part will be trying to put the parts together at the end into a fantastical, one of a kind micro-building!

There will be a bit of commerce and each child will be provided with a series of certificates which can be exchanged for pre-packaged parts of various colors and shapes.

It should be huge fun!  I am so looking forward to this!

*** I am considering adding a second section of this class.  To do that, I need at least 7 participants in that section. ***

Note: This class is at Resurrection Lutheran, 1900 E. Carson (at Cherry)

    sorry, a big possibility we won't be able to make it. So, would like to give our space to someone who can make it for sure.

    I was on the waiting list and was notified that we could go but now we will be out of town! So a spot has opened again for someone in the morning session. I will have Emberlynn Niemann attend a future session. Thank you and my apologies for the late notice! This was a last minute trip that had to be made this weekend.

      Hi Alaina, Sorry we won't be seeing you on Friday! We'll look forward to you at another build session!

      Hi Alaina, I'm going to go ahead and take you off the RSVP list. We hope to see you soon!

    No. We are not attending this Friday, but would like to be on the waiting list for next month + 3 others:)

      Thanks for letting us know in time, Diana. We're trying to figure out the best structure for these sessions. I'm hoping that it will only get better as we go along, and that the kids will start to see their personal contributions to the scenes we will make.

    If anyone has a few duplo bricks I can borrow for the session, I'd like to roll them into the conversation. we'll only need one family to loan some bricks for the day, don't want everyone's bricks to get confused.

  • Anissa

    Will she repeat this? I'm not even on the waiting list!

    March 3, 2013

    • Patricia T.

      Hi Anissa, Absolutely we will repeat this. My plan is to do a monthly microbuild theme, that I will execute as many times as I need to. I am hesitating on expanding to too many youth, as I would like to make sure the experience is manageable.

    My son will turn 6 in June...would he be able to sneak in under the radar? If not, I certainly understand :-).

    • Cindy C

      Hi Nicole, if a space opens up, your son can certainly join the class. Thanks!

    Alba is not going to make it today. We were at the Fire Fighter Museum Field Trip and I thought we could do these back to back but I was wrong. I'll pay via the website anyway. Thanks.

      Hi Ines, this class is next week. I hope you guys can make it.

  • Patricia T.

    I am considering adding another section of this event, as we have 4 waitlisted. If you are interested, please waitlist. I'm not sure when it would be just yet. Also, I am planning on doing a monthly microbuild offering, so keep your eyes open.

    My 8 year old son will attend

    I'm working on getting the parts I will need for this micro build. As I get them, I will add photos of ideas for the kids to build. The build itself will be free flowing, but directed.
