Kids get creative with Lego
THIS school holiday break was made extra special for a group of architects in the making.
Lockyer Valley Regional Council Library in Gatton held a number of Lego construction competitions over the school break for children in a range of ages.
Lockyer Valley Regional Council Library Children's Services Co-ordinator Julianne Bachmann said the creativity displayed by the region's youngsters was a great indicator for the future.
“Lego freighted up the barrels for the two weeks of the school holidays because of the floods, as a way to make some kids happy,” Mrs Bachmann said.
“We were very fortunate to get the Lego, because they normally don't do it in Queensland.
“It has really drawn some kids to the Library and given them something to do over the school holidays that was a little bit different.
“We are considering getting some Lego here for the kids because they have really responded to it and the things they create are amazing.”
Mrs Bachmann said the competitions, for kids aged between 5-8 and 9-12, competed for the winning title in their sections.
“We had the ‘building the tallest Lego construction' and ‘best construction' in the different section.
“Cr Peter Friend was choosing the winner and while it was clear who won the tallest Lego tower, the best construction was a little more difficult.
“Some of the kids came up with houses with TVs and one even had a spa with bubbles.
“It has been great to see what they came up with.”
