Help create an enormous ocean scene using everyone’s favorite building blocks during “LEGO Weekend” Jan. 26 and 27 at the Maritime Aquarium at Norwalk.

LEGO experts from Play-Well TEKnologies will be on hand both days to oversee a big, fun coral-reef scene made entirely out of LEGO blocks in Newman’s Own Hall (near the seals).

The experts will create the underwater environment, but it needs animals! Aquarium guests can build a small LEGO marine creature that will be part of the finished piece. Choose from such creatures as a jellyfish, seal, shark, sting ray, turtle and fish, or build an animal unknown to science from your imagination.

“If you’ve been to The Maritime Aquarium lately, you’ve had the chance to create a two-dimensional marine animal in the clever ‘Sketch & Release’ activity on our giant video wall,” said Aquarium spokesman Dave Sigworth. “‘LEGO Weekend’ adds a dimension — literally — by letting you use your creativity to assemble three-dimensional creatures.”

A colorful seahorse and fish, both made from LEGO blocks, populate an ocean scene created during last year’s “LEGO Weekend” in The Maritime Aquarium at Norwalk.

Also during “LEGO Weekend,” Aquarium guests can build motorized LEGO machines that will duel for superiority on LEGO Battletracks.

“LEGO Weekend” is free with Aquarium admission: $24.95 for adults; $22.95 for seniors (65+); and $17.95 for children (3-12). Kids under 3 get in for free.
