Little brickies express their creativity these school holidays

10 June 2015

Young aspiring master builders have their work cut out for them at Brick Kids, The Workshops Rail Museum's winter school holiday event, with LEGO® bricks and more for family fun from 27 June to 12 July.

Many thousands of LEGO® pieces will be at the disposal of visiting families to get hands on and create masterpieces and school holiday smiles.

Smaller fans can invent with bigger blocks in the Under 3's area with plenty of LEGO® DUPLO® to share. 

Museum Director Andrew Moritz said the event gives families time to connect and have fun with a variety of activities, including a miniature train ride and hands-on Museum exhibits.

"LEGO® needs little introduction! It's a timeless toy that can be enjoyed by parents and children together, and we value that family time, it's what we want for our visitors," he said.

"I wouldn't be surprised if some parents have more fun than their children as LEGO® is dear to the hearts of many adults.

“I personally have fond memories of building with LEGO® as a child and it’s been a joy to share this toy with my family."

Creation Station is a haven for children to use colour to express their creativity with LEGO® inspired craft, including decorating mini figures made of plaster, and colouring-in.

Visitors can take a guided tour of the active railway workshop to see where real life creations of the steam era live and are maintained. Enclosed footwear is required for this activity.
