GET TO GRIPS WITH SIX BRICKS!

You don’t have to do the Discover Sessions straightaway. Why not have some fun with Six Bricks – just like we did during the training? You could try out the different activities with your children. It will build your confidence and theirs. We love LEGO confidence.

Demonstrate the power of purposeful play!

You could do the Six Bricks activities outlined in the Team Meeting Guide but more can be found at The LEGO Foundation.

GET BUILDING WITH STEAM PARK!

Give your children the opportunity to explore the different elements of STEAM Park – remember the fun you had (see the video!) They can build interesting rides and explore how elements go together. When we trained, you all commented on how you would like to just let your children explore – so do it!

When you do start the Discover Sessions, your children will be more confident (and excited!)

START THE SESSIONS

We keep saying that this guide is really important – because it is! Work your way through the sessions that are appropriate for your children. Remember you can be flexible with both content and timings. 

Remember that the sessions all follow the same structure:

  • Warm Up (Six Bricks)
  • Task 1 (Explore)
  • Task 2 (Create)
  • Task 3 (Share). The best bit!
