Welcome to BRICKS 4 KIDZ® St. Louis – Kirkwood
Bricks 4 Kidz classes provide an extraordinary atmosphere for children, where we learn, we build, we play… with LEGO® bricks. Programs are built around our proprietary model plans, designed by engineers and architects, with exciting themes such as space, construction, and amusement parks. Our specially designed project kits and theme-based models provide the building blocks for the Bricks 4 Kidz approach to educational play. At Bricks 4 Kidz, we believe that kids learn best through activities that engage their curiosity and creativity.
Join us for our MODEL DESIGNER 101 SPRING BREAK WORKSHOP with the City of Shrewsbury. How do LEGO brick model-designers come up with their ideas? Where do they begin, and how do ideas go from concept to creation? This workshop will explore the creative process of model design. Students will learn the function of different LEGO components and discover how these components can work together to create all kinds of solid structures and moving parts using motorized LEGO bricks. Grades K-5. March 18-19. 9am-12pm. $65 per child. Register with the City of Shrewsbury Parks and Recreation Department by calling 314-647-1003.
Our next Kidz Night Out will be held on Saturday, February 22 from 5-8pm at the Brentwood Recreation Complex. This will be a high-energy evening full of LEGO entertainment for kids ages 6-12. The theme of the night is Minecraft. Join us as we craft key elements with LEGO bricks, build monsters, and construct our own world of Minecraft. Each child will take home a mini LEGO creeper from the popular game. We’ll also provide pizza and drinks. $40 per child. Register by clicking “Register Now!” above.
