This program is offered on the second Saturday and Monday of each month. Constructive play for children is not an idle pastime. In fact, research shows that block play helps children develop social/emotional skills; physical coordination and manipulation skills; math, science; language and literacy skills, and more. To appeal to a broader age range and interests, we have absorbed our popular LEGO Play into a general "Block Party", including blocks of many kinds (along with a variety of figurines, animals, and other props.) While ardent LEGO fans may choose to work exclusively with LEGO, there will be plenty of construction materials to stimulate creativity and self-expression. Designed with children ages three to twelve in mind, the whole family - including children with disabilities - is welcome to join the fun. Parents must remain with children younger than six and those with special needs.
