Lego Group can encourage sibling interaction, along with promoting role play, wider group interaction, turn taking and eye contact. This is done through playing with Lego in a structured way. It is great fun and there is always adult support on hand.
Lego Group is bringing together a small group of young people (usually around 9 young people) who are then split into smaller groups of 3. Each smaller group is given the task of completing a small lego build. Each person in the group has a role, and they are encouraged to stay in this role by an adult helper. One person in the group is the Engineer, they have the instructions. One person is the Supplier, they have the bricks. One person is the Builder, they build the item. As you can imagine, the engineer needs to tell the supplier what to give the builder, and then how to put the bricks together!
It is good fun and there is always help on hand if needed! Of course, the role would change each week so that they don’t get bored and they get a chance to do each different part.
There is an opportunity to have snack and play with mixed lego throughout the session.
If you are interested in your child/children taking part in this group, please contact Laura on firstname.lastname@example.org or 01595 743900 and ask for Laura.
