Legos @ the Library: Creative Creations

On this beautiful afternoon that hinted of spring, Lego builders of all ages got together to do their thing!  (Ok, no more rhyming, I promise!)  This Lego session seemed especially creative to me, for some reason.  Maybe the spring air has our minds going in different directions…who knows.  Anyway, here are some photos from today’s Lego group:

Everyone searching for the perfect piece to complete their creations.

One Lego builder took one of my challenges and built this bridge in 5 minutes, only using one hand!

Here are some more creative creations:

What is your idea for a creative Lego creation?  I’d love to hear about it in the comments!

Here’s a look at some of the other great creations from today’s program:

For next month’s Legos @ the Library, I’m looking for picture books to use for Lego inspiration.  So far, I’d like to use Chris Van Dusen’s If I Built a Car and If I Built a House.

Does anyone have suggestions for other books that might spark a great Lego idea?
