If your child loves to tinker and build all manner LEGO® creations, from castles to buildings to anything your child can imagine, the Inventors Workshop Camp at the Children’s Museum of the Brazos Valley is just the right place. This camp is the perfect opportunity for you to keep your floor clear of blocks and LEGO® pieces and to let your kids’ imaginations run wild!
Campers will have many opportunities throughout the week to use their creativity and critical thinking skills to build whatever comes to their mind. Studies have shown that using free play building time does increase children’s fine motor skills, and according to the website of Bricks 4 Kidz®, an educational program designed to teach S.T.E.M. concepts through creative play with LEGO® bricks, there is “a strong correlation between strong spatial reasoning with innovation and creativity later in life.” Sounds like a great way to get their brains working before sending them back to school!
From August 5-9, your 4 to 11 year old can have some fun with other kids and get their minds working with the many hands on activities that the camp has to offer. Camp is from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. For parents that need to get to work, kids can be dropped off as early as 8:00 a.m. and will cost $25 for the week. Late pick up is $50 for the week and ends at 5:30 p.m.
The Children’s Museum summer camps cost $150 a week for Standing Ovation Level CMBV Members, $200 for Clapping Hands members and non-members, and offers a daily rate of $50 per day.
As the summer winds down and you prepare to send the kiddos back to school, get them signed up for The Inventors Workshop Creator Camp! Registration ends Friday, August 2, so visit http://bit.ly/2YnZqyc to register your future engineers and architects for camp!
