This past month, the Oak Tree children were invited to join the “Better Together Building Club”! Some of the materials we worked with included Lego, Plus-Plus, and Magnetic Tiles.
Our first building task was to complete a Lego challenge card with a buddy! I handed out secret envelopes to each child and whatever envelope they chose was their challenge! Some of the challenges they received were “Build your favourite restaurant” and “Create the Jack and the Bean stock farytale”.
Oak Tree Quotes:
"I made a piano with the keys and the chair"
"This is my restaurant"
"Look how cool my boat is"
Another memorable moment during our building club was our “Plus-Plus Bey Blade Battles”. This was a popular day for the Better Together Building Club as building Bey Blades is a very common activity amongst the Oak Tree children!
To make this day extra exciting, I set up entrance tickets for the children to wear around their necks in order to enter the Bey Blade arena.
They had to create one Bey blade out of large plus-plus, and one Bey Blade out of small plus-plus. Once they were confident with their creations, they lined up behind the Bey Blade arena and had a face-off with one of their opponents. The goal was to spin your Bey-blade and hope that is doesn't stop before your opponent’s bey-blade does.
Here was the Turn out:
What a successful club because it enticed a new group of children to participate in an Oak Tree Club! Thanks Oak Tree for all the fun!
