Lego Quest at the Roxy

January 23, 2014

That old adage of a classic never going out of style was proved true at the Roxy on Tuesday, with plenty of youngsters thrilled at the chance to participate in Lego Quest.

Children of different ages were diving in to select blocks and pieces of the firm favourite toy, keen to beat the clock in the online competition.

Some of the items they were asked to construct included an ancient monument, food, and even a self portrait.

Lego’s not just for boys

“This is all about encouraging the children to be having fun; working together while doing something other than using technology,” Bingara librarian Gail Phillpot said. “It is hands-on, social and interactive and the children talk to each other and help each other out.”

Lego Quest is one of the many activities organised to keep children occupied over the school holidays as part of the Kids take over the Roxy and The Summer Reading Club programs.
