Do you love to create with legos? Put together lego kits? Build, share, and get amazing ideas from your friends? If you answered “YES!” to any of these questions, the Lego Maniac Club is for you. The familiar clink of legos will be heard around Evergreen in this fun-filled, inspirational club. Bring your own or use legos that are provided. Kids will get a chance to share their creations and inspire each other as they use legos to design their own creations and/or use pre-designed kits.

This class will focus mostly on learning the basics of jewelry making. This class is unique because the jewelry pieces are second hand or natural items. For example, we take apart and re-use jewelry that others might regard as broken or ugly and repurpose them. Donations are definitely welcome!
