Virtual LEGO Club

Sadly, we won’t be able to have LEGO Club inside the library, but we still want to see your LEGO creations!

 

Every Monday a new challenge will be posted here and on our Facebook group (Children’s Corner). After you have completed the challenge, post your creation on our group page. If you don’t have Facebook, email your picture to youthservices@ralstonlibrary.org. Every picture submitted will put your name in a drawing for a new LEGO kit!

 

Week 10 Challenge:

We are going to get our hands a little dirty this week! I want you to make LEGO slime! The recipe I have linked is super simple and only requires Clear Elmers Glue and Stayflo Liquid Starch. You can use whatever slime recipe you want! Once you make your slime, add your LEGO pieces!

Weekly Make & Take Crafts

As many of you know, Ms. Justine loves crafts! Because we are not able to do crafts after storytime together, every week a make & take craft will be available. This means we supply everything needed for the craft, and you take it home to complete it. Be sure to include how many children you need crafts for when you are reserving!

If the library is open: pick up your craft in the Children’s Room.

If the library is closed: reserve your craft to be picked up at a designated curbside pickup.
