20th June, 2013
Helping encourage children to explore their creativity this summer, LEGOLAND® Discovery Center Westchester and its Master Model Builder David Howard are inviting area children to “dig into LEGO® bricks” for a fun-filled LEGO building workshop on Wednesday, July 3 from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. in the event space at the Riverfront Library (One Larkin Center) in Yonkers.
Summer reading in 2013 is all about going “BENEATH THE SURFACE” and “DIGGING INTO READING,” and to balance out eager readers’ experiences visiting the library, at the event children will “GET THE DIRT” from David Howard on creating with LEGO bricks. Participating children just need to bring their creativity and engineering skills, LEGOLAND Discovery Center Westchester and the Library will supply the LEGO bricks. Additionally, photos of the children’s LEGO creations will be taken at the event and sent to them via email. The Library will also host a raffle offering a chance to win a family pack of tickets to LEGOLAND Discovery Center Westchester.
LEGOLAND Discovery Center Westchester’s Grand Central Terminal replica and the Library’s book display will be available to provide children with inspiration for designing cool LEGO builds.
The event is free to attend and appropriate for children ages 6-10: children must be accompanied by an adult or their older teen sibling(s).
LEGOLAND Discovery Center Westchester is a $12 million, 32,300 square-foot indoor attraction featuring more than 3 million LEGO bricks, geared towards children ages 3-10 and their families. Its range of educational and interactive attractions will include hands-on play areas, a 4D cinema, master classes led by Master Model Builders, two LEGO amusement rides, special party rooms and MINILAND — the venue’s signature re-creation of landmark locations and buildings throughout Westchester County and New York City, made entirely out of LEGO bricks.
