There were 13 kids at yesterday’s Legos @ the Library program (held on Friday the 13th). Is this some sort of double bad luck? Judging from the creative structures featured in the photos below, I would say definitely not!
I usually try to have some sort of a “challenge” for kids who may not have a clear idea of what they would like to work on. This time, it was superstitions. I came up with a list of occurences that are meant to bring good luck (like finding a four leaf clover) and others that you should avoid at all costs (like opening an umbrella inside). I tried to find twelve for each list and it was difficult! During the research process, however, I learned some new superstitions. For example, did you know that if you spill pepper you will have an argument with a friend? One person attempted to recreate a superstition in Lego form:
The rest of the kids didn’t take my superstition challenge. They were busy with projects they had already started at home, or ideas they wanted to try immediately. Here are some of my favorites from the day:
As usual, this program was very enjoyable for me. I even tried to build something-what it was supposed to be, I have no idea. I’m looking forward to the next Legos @ the Library on May 11th.
If you live in the Ellsworth, Maine area and would like to attend this program, it is held on the second Friday of the month at the Ellsworth Public Library from 2:00-3:00 p.m. If you would like more information, please let me know in the comments!
