LEGO week’s over

600_9265_wYesterday early evening ended a special week for me.

Last week our church organized a kids week. Kids at age 8 to 12 were invited to build a city from Lego. About 800 kg of Lego was delivered on Tuesday. We set up a huge table for the buildings, tables for the kids for building purposes and other tables for the stone boxes.

From Wednesday to Friday, the kids built cars, trains, houses and lots more. Some assembled the pieces from ready to build boxes and others build free. Sunday morning was visiting time for parents, grandparents, relatives, friends and so on.

On Sunday afternoon about 30 adult hands needed 5 hours for dismounting everything and putting every stone back in the right box. Thus, the work 60 kids hands and 30 adults hands have built during the week, was removed in only 5 hours.

It was a lot of fun!

Maybe you can see the fun in the gallery, too. I didn’t put any people in the gallery, because of privacy reasons.

Enjoy!
