Keith Moran is a real brick when it comes to entertaining children.

He is using Lego to encourage youngsters to learn as they play together, turning up at children’s groups wearing a giant Lego head and with a pile of bricks to play with.

Bricks 4 Kidz sessions help teach youngsters about engineering, science, technology and maths.

Keith, 38, added: “It teaches children about following instructions, working together, using their hands and communicating.”

Keith, 38, said both he and his son, Ronnie, aged three, love Lego.

He added: “At the moment, Ronnie likes building it and knocking it down. When I first walked in with my head on he started laughing.”

Keith recently became one of the first people in the country to take up a local franchise for the Bricks 4 Kidz company. He said sessions are ideal for after-school clubs, pre-schools, summer camps and young uniformed groups.

He already has sessions at Strong Close Nursery in Keighley, Daisy Chain Children’s Centre in Silsden and Glusburn Beavers.

Keith plans to run free weekly events at Central Hall in Alice Street, with a taster from 10am to 2pm on February 25. E-mail kmoran@ for further information.
