Danish Club of Ottawa Christmas Party - December 5, 2010
Once again the Danish Club of Ottawa invited members of
ParLUGment to participate in the annual children’s Christmas
party. Young and old(er) enjoyed viewing and playing with their
native toy. LEGO designed Christmas ornaments were ready for
building. While all enjoyed viewing the MOCs, the children were
more interested, naturally, in the free build table.
Railfair 33 - October 16-17, 2010
Algonquin College, Ottawa, Ontario
This marks our eighth year of participation in Railfair! Who could be tired of seeing LEGO trains?
Rideau Park United Church - May 8, 2010
Some members of the Club set up a compact display at the Hobby and Pastimes Show at Rideau Park United Church. Many made their way to our room and many of those that did, didn’t want to leave - for the best LEGO reason ever - it was a hands-on, intereactive train layout. The children were encouraged to play with the vehicles and move them around the layout - a very novel idea. There was also a free build table beside the static displays, but the lure of the interactive layout was too strong.
Beavers Colony meeting - Jan 26, 2010
Rideau Park United Church, Ottawa, Ontario
Some members of the club attended a Beaver colony meeting
with about 20 very LEGO-keen Beavers aged 5-7. We set up a small
display of Lego Town kits and MOCs to inspire. The colony was split
into 3 groups and were rotated through 3 activity centers. Area
1 - Free build with a race track to run their creations
down. Area 2 - Tree building method demo.
Area 3 - Highrise floor building. The floors were stacked at the very end showing what they accomplished as a team.
The LEGO generated an ample supply of enthusiasm and smiles from the children as well as the colony leaders. We recieved a huge thank you from the kids at the end of the meeting. It was certainly fun for us.
