Children had stacks of fun building with both sand and bricks at Norden Farm Centre for the Arts in Maidenhead on Tuesday.
The centre in Altwood Road played host to a build and play storytime workshop in association with Legoland and the children also took advantage of the good weather to enjoy its temporary Maidenhead Beach.
It is the first time that staff from Legoland in Windsor have run the day of activities at Norden Farm and all three storytime sessions were full to capacity, with about 15 children in each.
The 30 minute workshops encouraged children to create their own mini-lego houses and the staff from Legoland told stories using the models they had built.
Oliver Laurenson-Gore, education officer at Norden Farm, said: "It was really successful and the children really enjoyed it.
"They all had a chance to show how creative they could be and it's definitely something we want to do again."
The beach is also enjoying extended success and will be open throughout August due to popular demand.
Children are welcome to play in the sand, explore beach huts, take part in crafts, listen to stories and relax with some ocean themed films on Berkshire's unique seaside.
Paramedics were called to the scene of a medical emergency in Maidenhead on Monday morning (June 27).
