Two great things about TED Talks:
Battle of the Bricks
Published on Thursday, January 16, 2014
On Jan. 14, Petworth Neighborhood Library hosted its first round of LEGO Wars for our tween customers (children between ages 8-13)! Each participant was given approximately 150 LEGO bricks and had 30 minutes to create a themed construction. There were so many people that we needed split up the competition into two different rounds!
The children participating in the first round decided to compete individually and had to invent something that pertained to "monsters." Everyone came up with something different, including an underground monster house with stairs as well as a dragon.

Petworth children had fun creating pop-up cards on Dec. 18.
We used paper stars and trees, and the children decorated the trees with sequins.
Some of the children gave their cards to residents at the Old Soldiers' Home, and another girl gave her card to her teacher. We're sure that their cards brought joy to these folks.
