On Friday Master 6 and a number of friends attended a LEGO Workshop held locally in the eastern suburbs of Melbourne. It was run by Create and Learn. A mum from kinder last year had put me on to the sessions (thanks Donna!).
My kids adore LEGO and it was fantastic that the LEGO workshops were only a 5 minute drive from home. The workshops were also incredibly good value for money:
- 1 Session – $15 per child
- 2 Sessions – $27 per child
Sessions were 45 minutes each and you can book in to them back to back, so Master 6 did the Funtasy Workshop from 9.30am – 10.15am, then the Space Mission Workshop 10.30am – 11.15am.
I didn’t stay for the sessions, although there was seating at the venue where you could wait and watch if so inclined! This table was set up for the Funtasy Workshop and the session was about getting kids to use their imagination or recall stories using LEGO. The kids could choose to work on their own or with friends. Master 6 did a bit of both he said.
Master 6 also said the Space Mission Workshop was his favourite. While there were instructions for the kids to follow, the kids could choose if they wanted to make their space craft as per the instructions or create their own. Master 6 said he made his a bit like the picture but added some guns (excellent – love the added weaponry!).
I was impressed at the organisation of the session. Registration on the day was quite quick and we were given a number to collect our child. The child had matching number and name tag. I had three to hold as we had his friends come back for lunch.
Master 6 asked if could do it again next holidays as soon as I picked him up. It ticked the boxes for me and he enjoyed the workshops, so I can see us doing more LEGO workshops over the forthcoming holidays.
You can find out more information about the LEGO workshops at the Create and Learn website.
