Drop-in, no registration

Due very small parts we ask that children be
5 – 12 years old!

Children ages 5 - 12 are invited to join the Builders’ Club 4-5:30pm on Fridays (see dates above), in the Activity Room.  Join us for afternoons of building with the bricks we all know and love.  Come build with your favorite interlocking blocks!  Each week we will have a challenge, and if you’re lucky, your creation will be chosen to be displayed in our glass case.  Due to the small pieces utilized, we ask that only those children 5 – 12 years of age be actively involved in the program and that they stay and help put pieces away.  Perhaps your “littles” would enjoy our newly reopened Parenting Room.
