Lego Brick Wetland Safari at WWT Washington
Please note this post contains spoiler Photos
We were kindly invited along to a sneak preview of the brand new Lego Trail at WWT Washington. We have been members for a while now and love visiting throughout the seasons so it is just an added bonus to have something extra like this for the kids to enjoy.
The Lego Workshop is an hour long session with only 16 other individuals taking part. It is a workshop with team and individual challenges and then you build your own Lego duckling to take home with you. The centre is also offering relaxed sessions for those who like a bit more quiet time, which I think is so thoughtful and lovely.
During the challenges you are placed into groups and then you have a set amount of time to finish the task. The first task was to create as many ducklings as you could, the second task was to create a car and then see how far it went on the ramp and the third was to create your own duck to take away. The whole thing lasts around an hour and is great fun. I would say it is for kids aged 6 and up but for the smaller ones, there will be a box of bricks to play with and a car mat too. Parents are welcome to help with the tasks.
Few need to knows for the workshop

The workshops cost just £7.50 per person for the hour (Adults are free) and will be taking place from 9th April - 5th June ( Please check the website HERE for further info on dates) 10.30 - 11.30 & 1pm - 2pm Booking is essential. Don't forget you also need to book your admission to the reserve itself (members are free but still need to pay and book for the workshops)
The Lego trail takes you around the nature reserve in hunt of some fantastic sculptures built from Lego. You can collect a trail map from reception and there are 4 questions to answer. The sculptures around the wetlands have gorgeous colourful info boards which all have a QR code.
If you are visiting over Easter you can also take part in the Easter Duck Trail taking place 15th - 18th April wander around the reserve in search of the big Yellow Ducks. You can collect a trail card from the admission desk.
We have always encouraged people to support places like this, not only is it on our doorsteps but it is a great place to have a day out. There loads to see and do here at WWT Washington. For the younger kids there's also a fantastic play area with water play. We love a good walk through the woods throughout the seasons.
No bird feeding is currently allowed and the flamingo section of the reserve is still closed, unfortunately no keeper talks will be taking place.( They hope to have the Otter talks back on for Easter Holidays)
