Lego Ideas

I want to have a huge lego building event at my church where teams of students work together to transform our youth room into a habitable lego dwelling, at least for a few days. I have many students with piles of legos from their younger days, so getting the blocks isn’t a problem.

Here is where I need some help. How do I get all of the blocks back to the rightful owners? I need a simple, fast way to identify all of the blocks, who they belong to, and an efficient way of getting them back to their owner. I have pondered this for a couple of days and my best solution so far is just to sell all of the blocks at a yard sell and divide the money according to percents of blocks placed in the pile.

Any better suggestions than that?


UPDATE: I never did figure out a good way to seperate the blocks so I just got one guy with an abundance of bricks to bring them. Then we just did an activity with those blocks. The activity was to build some sort of a protective structure and then I think we talked about the protection of God or something similar.

    Is it possible to use a certain persons legos to build a certain item? To try not to mix them? I'm interested to hear other ideas and would love to see some pics when you get it together!

    Keep the blocks. Store them. Pull them out from time to time and use with your message.
