The kids posed for a few more photos on the way out. It was amazing to think of how many Legos must have been used to build all the statues. And the time it took to make them!
Overall we had a great time and were completely pooped when we were done. But it was well worth the trip (and the cost).
Some of the things we didn’t get to do included the brick pile (a giant pile of Legos–enough to bury a kid in!), the Master Builder sessions (you had to be there early to sign up), or the Construction Zone. We did briefly stop by the Lego City section and the Garden of Giving. There was certainly never a lack of things to do.
Here are some tips I’d recommend if you’re attending a Lego Kidsfest near you:
1. Go with at least one other adult.
2. Leave the itty bitty ones at home.
3. Give yourself a time limit at each station.
4. Have fun!
5. Skip the shop.
That’s what we did. Since this was Skyler’s birthday celebration I bought some little Lego favors for the kids to play with afterwards. It’s tempting to want to buy some of the awesome toys while you’re there. But we decided to save money (and time) and just focus on playing. We can always add Legos to the Christmas list.
Are your kids Lego-lovers? Have you ever been to a Lego Kidsfest? What was your experience like? Have little ones who aren’t quite ready for regular-sized Legos, but too big for Duplos? I think you’ll love my post on how to Encourage Creative Play with Lego Juniors!
