Micro-Build with LEGO Bricks! Ages 8-13

This is a repeat of our recent microbuilds.  We're just doing a different day, at a different place, for a little bit older kids.

Note: This class will be at Lighthouse Church, 3455 Studebaker (near Wardlow).

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 an original take home creation of your child's.

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!

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

    Hi Guys, Whoo hoo! Looking forward to tomorrow! We have a unique opportunity, as Warner Brothers is seeking models for the upcoming LEGO movie! If we produce something cohesive, we will be able to submit it as a possible prop in the movie.
