The Blockdown Challenge is over!
We had some absolutely fantastic entries, all of which are shown below.
ISLA’S KID ZONE
This last minute entry from Isla Anderson looks like loads of fun! We particularly love the handmade sign and the spotlight on top of the building, great attention to detail.
ROBBIE’S ROLLER COASTER
Meet six year old Robbie Marrison and his adorable co-builder, Murphy the dog.
Robbie goes to Castlehill Primary 2 where I guess he studies architecture and theme park design because WOW! Look at that incredible K’nex rollercoaster!
Robbie and Murphy would like to say “Thank you to all the Key workers and Charity’s that are providing so many fantastic services!! You are all doing a fantastic job.”
LUCY’S LORNE AND LOWLAND CHURCH
Lucy McFadzean, aged nine, created this incredible Lego version of Campbeltown’s beautiful Lorne & Lowland church. The attention to detail in this build is simply amazing.
CARLA’S COLOURFUL HOUSE
Nine year old Carla Renton built this beautiful, colourful house.
There’s a ton of details in this one and we really loved seeing all the minifigures set up, painting and horse riding and about to head out on a scooter. Looks like a fun day!
Carla would like to offer “A huge thank you to all the Key Workers in our local community, you are doing a fantastic job.”
NEIL’S LEGO CITY
Neil Watson, aged six, has spent a portion of his time in lockdown building an entire Lego city!
There’s a train station and cargo yard, a farm with a vegetable garden and watering system and a police station with fire and police vehicles.
Neil’s mum works for the NHS (thank you so much for all you do!) and they are “grateful to everyone that’s keeping essential services running but especially supermarket staff who have been subjected to such abuse but put themselves at risk every day so that we can all eat.”
We agree wholeheartedly, Neil.
KYLE’S LOCKDOWN LODGES
Eight year old Kyle Gosling from Carradale sent us pictures of his brilliant Lockdown Lodges 2020. The Lego holiday village is powered by wind turbine and has zip lines to travel from lodge to lodge. We’d definitely like a long weekend there!
Kyle and his mum, Bryony, “would like to say a huge thank you all the frontline health workers who are helping to keep everyone safe during this awful time.”
It took a lot of head scratching, sitting up until the wee hours staring at the pictures. We deliberated, we cogitated, we caffeinated and eventually we decided on our three winners. All of the builds were utterly wonderful but we had to pick three and so, without further ado…
CARLA, LUCY AND ROBBIE ARE OUR WINNERS!
Well done to everyone who entered and to our winners, we’ll be in touch with your parents to send out your prizes.
Thank you so much to everyone who entered and keep your eyes peeled for more fun activities and competitions in the future!
