LEGO club is suitable for primary school aged children (5-12 years old), and each session runs for 45 minutes on a Monday (Kaiapoi) or Tuesday (Oxford and Rangiora) afternoon. Each week, children will have to use their imagination to build a LEGO creation they like. We can help with some inspiration if needed.
