LEGO® family night was such a HUGE success, I highly recommend hosting one at your library! Who doesn’t love LEGO®? 🙂

LEGO PRIZE TABLE
Our library received free tickets to The LEGO® Movie and a Mini LEGO® City Police Car to give away as prizes during family night. We normally don’t do prizes so this was a huge treat for the kids 🙂
Surprise LEGO® Box: Each person got to pick out one LEGO® piece from the surprise LEGO® box. I had a matching corresponding piece in my bag. At the end of the program, I drew from the matching LEGO® pieces to pick out the winner!
Since we had such a big group in a small space I decided to do LEGO® Stations to make for easier traffic flow. It worked out really well and gave a variety of activities to do!
1. Free Play & Building Challenges: I set out LEGO® bricks and LEGO® plates for the kids to build freely and a bowl of building challenges for those who wanted something harder. This was definitely the most popular station 🙂 I found a whole list of challenges from LEGO® Quest Kids. This blog is a great resource for Lego building ideas!
1. Create something the GOES (use wheels).
2. Use the same color LEGO® bricks to make a creation.
3. Build anything using only 30 LEGO® bricks.
4. Cook-up a LEGO® food dish!
5. Create a LEGO® self-portrait.
6. Design a LEGO® maze.
2. Play-dough LEGO® Stamping- This station included LEGO® bricks and Play-Doh® for the kids to stamp on. They loved making letters and race car tracks!

4. Read & Build LEGO® Books: These board books are perfect for young readers and builders. As you read the story, you build the characters! A variety of LEGO® Duplo Books can be found on Amazon.
In addition to having stations I had a table of LEGO® books for those interested in reading during the program or checking them out. Here are a few of my favorites 🙂
LEGO® Cheese & Crackers: Although these were a bit time consuming they turned out so cute! I used a big “smoothie” straw to cut out my cheese circles but if you have a small circle fondant cutter that would work best.
