Cold winter days + School Holidays = Too much screen time

Since LEGO bricks were first introduced in the 1950's children from all over the world have enjoyed building and creating using the LEGO brick system. With the recent LEGO movie and licensed sets now available it has become more popular than ever.
At Bricks 4 Kidz workshops children are invited to work in small groups using specially created Bricks 4 Kidz models and LEGO Technic pieces such as gears, axles, electric motors and more. As they build and create with LEGO they are not only having fun but they are also exploring STEM concepts of science, technology, engineering and maths (but you don't need to tell them it is educational).
They are also developing problem solving skills and gaining an understanding of how things work. While working as part of a group they can develop teamwork and communication skills as well as using their fine motor skills.
Bricks 4 Kidz are offering winter school holiday workshops in many areas around Sydney.
Workshops include half day, one day or two day programs. The themes for the workshops are:
Mining & Crafting Space Adventures Pirates
• Amusement Parks
