Lego Builders @ 10:30am

Child with Lego

Bring your imagination to create, build and play with the library’s new Lego collection. Suitable for children aged 2-4 years, the Lego Builders program involves using Lego to develop early literacy and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics) skills. Through songs and rhymes children will increase their functional vocabulary. The building activities tap into the children’s desire to explore, imagine and learn, providing hands-on opportunities for creativity and imagination.
