Children and parents gathered around the coloured blocks on Saturday to create masterpieces at Weston Museum, in Burlington Street.

Models included a ship, a desert island and a purple monster.

Some of the youngsters sought inspiration from Halloween with pumpkins and haunted houses while others let their imaginations run wild with all manner of creations.

The museum currently has the original wartime poster 
by Alfred Leete on display which can be viewed until January 13.
