Tips for Scouting Events...

  • Avoid the following at all costs. Not permitted. Creates rift in Space-Time Continuum...

    • Food / drink / popcorn / snacks around Brix piles !!! Virtually impossible to clean Brix.

    • All grassy areas (or "slotted" surfaces like wooden porches, cement grills, etc.)

    • Playing near depleted uranium or plutonium deposits.

    • Areas where people just ate (like Cafeteria) without first sweeping floor

  • Brixalot will bring both DUPLO and LEGO bricks for all ages

    • Invite Scouts, siblings, guests to play prior to event! Enough for all ;-)

  • Facilitated

    • With RARE exceptions, a Brixalot Facilitator is required for Scouting events

      • Risk of kids accidentally taking Brix

      • Keep area (and kids!) orderly

  • Duration

    • Typical Pack/Troop meeting

      • Recommend 50 mins of Free Play, so schedule a "special" meeting of 1.25-1.5 hrs

      • Minimize advancements, announcements, etc. for that meeting to maximize play time.

      • Plan for group pics at end of event just before closing ceremony (and email if you want to be on our website! ;-)

    • Primary Event, like Blue and Gold

      • Recommend 60-90 mins of Free Play

      • Do NOT put out Brix until READY TO PLAY! kids will not sit still seeing piles and piles of FUN nearby...

      • Layout logistics important: Brix need lots of floor space

        • Best if nearby open area, ready to receive Brix

        • If moving a block of tables/chairs to make space, might need brooms and allow extra time. This is challenging to efficiently execute with larger groups but can be done...
