has teamed up once again with Phillip Island
RSL offering Joey’s Kids Club members the
chance to get their creative and inventive
juices flowing at the Lego workshops on Fri-
day April 1.
There are two sessions – between 10.30am
and 1pm in the ANZAC Room.
Both girls and boys aged between five and
12 years of age can participate.
Kids can rotate between 3D and mosaic
or motorised technic stations which will
give them the option to do multiple technic
builds or colour builds.
Two themes will be offered:
* Movie Mash – calling all Super Heroes,
Jedi Masters and Frozen fans – kids can
build their favourite movie heroes to life
with fun Lego models.
* Mining and Crafting: Kids will be chal-
lenged as they bright their virtual designs to
life by building new mobile figures, mosaics
and custom models.
Bookings are essential. Visit www.phillip-
