T minus 6 days and the kids are off to school. They are excited. They can’t wait to not have to do chores whenever I deem necessary, they are ready to get a break from each other, they are thrilled to see their friends again. On the flip side, they are nervous about a new year. Will they like their Teachers? Will the Teachers like them? Will math be too hard? Will they do well this year? There are so many questions, so much anticipation and raw energy right now in my house.
I am so glad that we have something besides the first day of school to look forward to. We are all so excited to go to the Lego Kid’s Fest. What a great way to end the first week of school! I’ve asked each of the kids what they are most excited about. Here are their answers…
Seth: Getting the prize (in the Lego Club Magazine there is a card that he can present at the Lego Kid’s Fest for a prize – he can’t wait!)
Amelia: I don’t know what’s going to be there, so I don’t know….EVERYTHING! (I love her honesty)
Libby: Making Legos.
Elliott: Eating the Lego bricks.
Ok, so Elliott is not some kind of genius who makes 4 word sentences at 15 months, but I know that is what he will like the most Since Amelia didn’t know what to expect, I told she and the rest of the kids what would be happening.
• LEGO Model Gallery: 40 life-sized models made entirely from LEGO bricks
• LEGO Master Builders: live demonstrations and activities from the crew who get paid to play.
• Creation Nation: build your own creation to add to a custom map of the U.S.
• Race Ramps: build your own custom car, then race it down the ramp against friends and family.
• LEGO Games Arena: roll the dice to play LEGO board games.
• Construction Zones: creative free build, play and display areas.
• LEGO DUPLO®: younger visitors can explore imagination through building
.• LEGO Retail and KidsFest Marketplace: 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 Universe: become a custom LEGO Minifigure in this multiplayer online game.
• And much more, covering over 150,000 square feet of space.
After seeing all that is going to be there, the Lego excitement level in my house just went up tenfold!
As for me, I am most excited to spend the evening with my sweet family and watch my kids play, imagine, build and have fun together!
