Disclosure: I received complimentary tickets to this event, all opinions are my own.
I can’t think of anything better to do on a rainy Friday, then getting picked up early from school and going to explore over 3 acres of LEGO® family fun.. You should have seen the look on my kindergartener’s face when he walked into the school office where my 2-year-old and I were waiting to whisk him away to LEGO KidsFest.
We had “VIK” (very important kid) tickets so we got to go in an hour early and check out a workshop with a LEGO Master Builder. We learned about Sideways Building, Balance, Locking and more. Then, we got to try our hand at building either a spaceship or a robot for one of the Master Builders to check out.
After we put our LEGO bricks away, we headed on over to race some LEGO TECHNIC 4x4 Crawlers, this area was a big hit!
Behind the LEGO TECHNIC area was Creation Nation, a basketball sized map of the United States. We were invited to create a mosaic tile of anything we wanted to be placed on the map. My boys worked on a square together and then decided they wanted it placed in New Mexico. Check out how big the map is! I can’t wait to see the finished map, up on the KidsFest website!
Then, it was the moment we had all been waiting for – The BIG Brick Pile!
We grabbed a sample of juice from Honest Kids, in the monochromatic build area, before heading off into LEGO Model Museum.
The model museum was great! My kids are big fans of Star Wars and Superheroes so they were able to see many of their favorites!
The little guy was getting a little tired at this point so we made a quick trip to the LEGO Duplo section, where there were more big LEGO brick piles and a little coloring area sponsored by Scholastic. Then we hit up the gift shop and headed out!
We all had such a great time! The remaining sessions of LEGO KidsFest New England are all sold out so keep your eye out for the next time it comes to town.
