Budding young builders put their skills to the test as the Niagara-on-the-Lake Public Library hosted its Lego competition Monday — part of the library’s March Break activity program for kids.

“We’ve been seeing a lot of interest in Lego,” said Sharon McDonald, children’s library service associate. “We thought we’d put that to good use.”

In all, 16 kids between the ages of seven and 10 were on hand for the event.

The kids were divided into three groups and tasked with different timed challenges, including one in which they had to make a person out of plastic bricks with their eyes closed. 

“There were five rounds of activities that featured teamwork,” McDonald said.
