We’re having a Building Bonanza for children ages 3-10, accompanied by an adult, on Saturday, September 13 at 2 p.m. Building with Lego bricks develops spatial reasoning and teaches fractions and division without the child’s realization. Children learn to think in three dimensions, balance weight and use supports for their structures.
