Calling all Lego lovers – children are invited to participate in Vermilion Public Library’s second Virtual Lego Session this Friday.
“This session is for anyone 8 – 12 years old and there is no limit on the number of people that can participate,” said programs coordinator, Sheila Heit.
“The whole premise is to try and challenge the children by seeing what they can make, and providing a way for them to share them all together.”
Anyone who registers will be able to access a themed video two days prior to the Zoom session, which will act as their inspiration for the creation. Participants will watch the video to discover the theme, reference it while they build, and then share them with others during the online session.
The video will be posted on February 10, and the Virtual Lego Session will take place at 1 pm on February 12, (a non-instructional day for local elementary schools).
Heit said their first session in January was very successful, and that besides encouraging participation that the program inspired a lot of community interaction by viewing the completed Lego creations.
“It’s fun and inventive, and they were just fantastic creations — they are pretty cool,” said Heit.
“There was a lot of good feedback and people found it pretty engaging, so the whole endeavour is absolutely worthwhile.”
The library’s last Virtual Lego Session will take place on March 5, (another non-attendance day at school). After all three sessions, she will evaluate the program.
