All that aside, if it's hands on LEGO fun your kids need in the school holidays, you'll be pleased to hear the Build it 4 Kids team will be back this Easter, with another series of brick building workshops.
Build it 4 Kids LEGO Workshops
Build it 4 Kids' 3-hour classes are led by husband and wife team Penny and James Yerondais, who are both Primary School Teachers. The team guide children on brick building exercises, which mix science, basic mechanics, creativity and educational fun.
Split into age groups, you've got four workshops to choose from this Easter. One workshop is for kids 4 - 6 years, two for children 6 - 12 years, and one LEGO® Technics class for 6 - 12 year olds.
Junior Builders Workshop 4 - 6 yrs
The Junior Builders Workshop gives younger children the chance to experiment with LEGO blocks, working their way towards becoming 'Master Builders'!
Master Builders Workshops 6 - 12 years
Primary school children will work on their skills to complete challenges, games and puzzles in the Master Builder Workshops. There are two Master Builder classes to choose from this Easter.
Technic Builders Workshop 6 - 12 years
