Plans to launch 'library lego clubs' for children

Libraries in Essex have launched an appeal for unwanted lego Credit: PA

If you have any lego at home that the kids are too old to play with then why not donate it to a library in Essex.

The County Council have launched 'library lego clubs', where children can play and learn together, as well as take part in challenges against each other.

Anyone who would like to donate Lego can do so by taking it to their local library.

Children of all ages love Lego, but it also has a real educational quality helping the development of motor skills and creativity, and learn about problem solving skills.

If we are successful in gaining enough Lego, then we will be looking to launch a series of Lego clubs across the county where children can come together to take part in activities and Lego based challenges.
