My top 5 LEGO® building tips

by Evan Yee

1. When you're building a rocket ship you want the colours to look right. So if you organise the pieces into colour and shape at the start, you will get that rocket ship done quicker.

2. Make sure you eat breakfast before building your legos so that you aren't cranky while doing it.

3. Do all your homework first so that your parents aren't bugging you to do it while you're building your stuff.

4. Always finish your legos in one day because you might get messed up when you start where you left off.

5. You can push some lego pieces onto clay and when it dries, you can use that as a lego piece too. It's a different shape so there are more things you can build. For example the other day I built a plane and i stuck it on a clay mountain.

MY TOP 5 LEGO BUILDING TIPS

by James Harlow

1) "You need alot of space because I dump out my whole bucket of legos to make something really big!"

2) "I always try to make ships from star wars because they're my favorite. Pirate stuff is cool too."

3) "My mom always tell me to use my imagination when we build with legos and it really works!"

4) "Sometimes I try to put all the colors together but it's more fun if you mix them all up"

5) "My mom always makes me clean up after I play with my legos because she say if she steps on one it hurts her feet"

Top 5 LEGO Building Tips

by Benjamin Adamson

1.     If you need a wall, use hinges.

2.     If you want access to a house, build the roof on hinges or don’t build one at all!

3.     If you build a ship, make sure to build wings!

4.     Stay focused.

5.     If you’re building a boat, make your mast out of rounded bricks.

 

Top 5 LEGO Building Tips

by Noah Adamson

1.     Have an intelligent mind – think of exciting creations.

2.     If you’re reading from an instruction, don’t try to do it on your own. Follow the instructions.

3.     If you’re building on your own, have a distinguished mind about your creations. Try not to think about other people to copy. Try to think of something different and unique.

4.     If you don’t think you can do something, try it! If you don’t try something, you can’t accomplish it! After you do it, you know you can!

5.     Have fun building! If you don’t have fun, then what’s the point of building?

What makes a great birthday party?  

by Lorenzo Patrissi

A great birthday party always starts with parents that are fun and young at heart no matter their age.   Pick a theme and be creative.  If possible use the outdoors, play games and create an obstacle challenge or a Nerf gun battle, even if it rains the kids will have loads of fun rolling in the mud.  Indoor events are also great.   Kids enjoy making crafts and are always so proud and excited to show off their masterpieces.  Food is a must, but the best part is always the candy!  A candy station or goody bags will put big smiles on all the kids’ faces!!! And, don't forget music!!! Kids love to dance and sing-along to their favorite artist's lyrics.  Even the grown-ups will join in the karaoke.    Everyone loves watching videos. Be sure to video the event and end the day by showing the kids the fun they had!   Most importantly, remember that what makes a great birthday party is having your family and friends there to make memories with you!

 

What Makes a Great Birthday Party?

by Julianna Fontanilla

My idea of a great birthday party is going inside  an enormous space shuttle simulator for a sleepover. While inside the simulator, the kids get to pretend like astronauts in space. Everything is based on space.  The kids get to eat and sleep just like astronauts in a mission.

They also wear a pretend space suit. Also, the shuttle simulator gets to move around like a roller coaster to avoid flying asteroids.

Perhaps, the shuttle simulator can pretend to land on the moon and the kids will get rock samples to bring back to earth!

At the end of the sleepover in the space shuttle, the kids get to keep souvenirs from their trip and a notebook where they can keep their pictures and journals during their trip inside the simulator. This is my idea of  what makes a great birthday party. 

 

What Makes a Great Birthday Party?

by Jonathan Kang

A great birthday party has a LEGO theme.  All of your friends come in.  First you start the party games.  You play tag.  Everyone is holding a LEGO piece and when you tag someone they have to give you their LEGO piece until someone has all the LEGOS. Next, you would build LEGOS with all of your friends and watch a LEGO movie.  After that you would have a LEGO fight with green and blue light sabers.  Next, everyone gets a turn to hit the LEGO piñata.  It has LEGO shaped candy inside of it. Then, everyone eats lunch.  I don’t like pizza so instead I would want PB&J on whole wheat bread, pretzels, vegetables and crackers to eat.  After lunch you would cut the LEGO cake and the birthday boy would get to have the first piece.   At the end, everyone gets a goodie bag with LEGO shaped lollipops and mini LEGO figures inside them.  Lastly, everyone says “happy birthday” to the birthday boy and goes home!  This is my idea of a great birthday party.
