Our second builders club meeting was another success! My boys love getting everything ready and bringing down the bins and bins and bins and bins of MegaBloks to share with the club.

This meeting our theme was creatures. Some of the kids thought that was a little too similar to our last theme, animals…oops. They were kind of right. So some of the kids built creatures and some built vehicles and some built combinations of both and some built whatever they wanted. But they all had fun!

Last meeting one of the kids informed me that the figures and some of the pieces reminded him of Halo, which I am completely unfamiliar with so I had no idea. We looked it up and they were right! We got some great ideas for future themes and things to build at home in the meantime.

We had some new friends come this time – everybody was so excited to dig in and build!

Elliot built an interesting flying contraption.

Seeing what these kids come up with always amazes me – he only uses a few unique pieces, but his creation is super cool! And it had moving parts and everything.

This friend built one of my favorite things (but I didn’t tell everyone that!). He used some more really interesting pieces to make a very unique creature. I never would have put those pieces together! These kids are so creative and good at building!

Elliot in his “spy clothes,” playing with a bridge someone made. I have since confiscated that too-small shirt. He has such a hard time growing out of his favorite things.

Linus and I built a car – we have found so many neat pieces in our buckets of blocks from MegaBloks – all kinds of cool vehicle making blocks, wheel bases, hub cab things, and more. Putting them together is so much fun!

Gus made a Crab Car – it drives sideways just like a crab walks. I had no idea he even knew a crab could move sideways! I loved his creativity and also how he assimilated other information he’s learned recently into his building.

We’re the lucky ones – after building club is over my boys play with all the creations for days and immediately start looking forward to the next meeting!

{An enormous THANK YOU to MegaBloks for providing our club materials!}
