LEGOs Plus Families Plus Book-Inspiration = Awesome Program!

Heidi Weber from Rice Lake Public Library had great things to say about their LEGO Family Challenge last month: 

We had families work together to create a Lego structure that represented their favorite book.   We had 15 teams with about 50 participants.   We got the most amazing Harry Potter, Iron Giant and Hunger Games creations!

  I made Lego cookies and we had guess how many Lego blocks are in the jar for a prize (a two year old won).   It was really awesome to see families interacting together for about an hour. 

  We had lots of Lego books on display and many were checked out.  Each family got a Lego platform and a extra large Ziploc bag full of random LEGOS to make their book-inspired creations.
