Splash parks, pools, and playgrounds have been in the rotation for weeks now, and your kids may be growing weary (shocking, we know). Shake things up with a class or camp that lets the littles keep their hands busy crafting, cooking, inventing, and building.

Young builders ages 6-14 can learn how to build a whale mini model at a LEGO Club meeting or compete to see who has the fastest brick building skills at the Minifigure Speed Build Challenge. Advance registration and $10 are required for the club meetings. The competition on July 29 is free; just show up prior to the 5 pm start time. The winner of the challenge earns a Build A Minifigure 3-pack!
