I have 4 kids in this house who are huge fans of LEGO®. Jeffery is my biggest fan of them and whenever he has money or we ask what he wants…it’s always a LEGO® set. I’m not a fan of them being all over the floor and being a pain in my feet when I accidentally step on them, but I love the creativity they bring out in all of my kids. That’s why I can’t wait to take my kids to the LEGO KidsFest in Richmond on October 3rd!
LEGO® KidsFest is a hands-on, educational, all-ages LEGO® extravaganza features millions of LEGO bricks, not to mention lots of construction zones, dozens of life-sized LEGO® models and displays, LEGO® Friends, LEGO® Chima, LEGO® Star Wars, live LEGO® Master Builders, and so much more covering three acres of space.
I wish I had taken a picture or a video of Jeffery when I told him we’d be going to the LEGO® KidsFest on October 3rd. His face was priceless…he’s so excited. I told him about the Race Ramps where he can build a car from LEGO® bricks and race them against friends and family! I’m excited to introduce him to LEGO® Mindstorms where he can build and program robots and snakes…with Jeffery’s mind I know he would have a field day with them! The list of some of the activities (subject to change) are:
* LEGO® Model Gallery: dozens of life-sized models made entirely from LEGO® bricks
* LEGO® Master Builders: live demonstrations and activities from the crew who get paid to play
* Race Ramps: build a custom car, then race it down the ramp against friends and family
* LEGO® Chima: choose a tribe and test battling skills with the whole family
* LEGO® Star Wars: build and display a Star Wars model
* Creation Nation: build your own creation to add to a custom map of the U.S.
* LEGO® DUPLO: younger visitors can explore imagination through building
* LEGO® Retail: purchase LEGO® merchandise and official KidsFest tour goods
* Brick Pile: a gigantic pile full of LEGO® bricks for creative play and enjoyment
* Monochromatic Builds: bricks of a single color to foster group creativity
* LEGO® Friends: build for the five empowered friends from Heartlake City
* LEGO® Ninjago: spin the way to being a Spinjitzu member
* LEGO® Mindstorms: build and program robots and snakes
* LEGO® City: using the imagination to create buildings and vehicles to the urban diorama
Interestingly enough, did you know that LEGO® is the contraction of two Danish words, “leg godt” which means “play well”? Or how about that children around the world spend five billion hours a year playing with LEGO® bricks.
