Bricks 4 Kidz Session!

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

Maimoonah attended a session with Bricks4Kidz today. The QMuslimah online Forum sisters had organized this event for the members' kids and it was a nice session. This is the description of Bricks 4 Kidz according to their website

Bricks 4 Kidz classes provide an atmosphere for children to, learn, build and play with LEGO® bricks. Programs are built around model plans, designed by engineers and architects, with themes such as space, construction, and amusement parks.
The objectives of this program includes the introduction to engineering and architectural principles, exploring math and science concepts, fostering an appreciation for how things work; and for the younger participants, improving fine-motor skills and utilizing multiple learning modalities to engage visual, kinesthetic and auditory learning styles.
We organized with them a special one time session for our kids Ages 2 - 4 for one hour which included 30 minutes of Lego building and 30 minutes of an art activity. Ages 5 and up had a session which included 45 minutes of Lego building , 45 minutes of Art Activity and 30 minutes of Games.

Small kids built a Heart using Lego Bricks and did a painting the heart activity for arts and crafts.

Maimoonah was with the 5 and up group. They had to look at the model on the paper and  follow instructions and build the Heart with lego bricks independently.

Then were asked to identify letter I with different bricks and colours.

They were also asked to make their names with small lego bricks,

As for arts and craft they made paper kite, decorated them and were allowed to go outside and fly the kites they made.

 Finally they had few games with Bricks. A memory game where they had to identify which brick was missing and the size and colour of the brick that was missing.

They also had a brick balancing race. Once balancing the brick on the head then on the hands.

Alhamdulillaah it was a nice experience for Maimoonah and the environment was nice as well. The staff were very kind and enthusiastic. And they were very obliging and flexible with our requirements and charges. We thanks Ms. Hayley Walker and her staff for a wonderful session with our kids.
