Delbert and I got to go to LEGO KidsFest in Charlotte, NC, thanks to being sponsored to do it through US Family Guide. Delbert was thrilled to have the chance to go to any LEGO event. He literally worked his hiney off to be able to have the full day off from school. When we went I wasn’t expecting to see a whole lot there. I thought I was going to be bored out of my gore.
Master Builder’s Class
However, we were blessed with meeting a mother who was a veteran to these kinds of events prior to it starting. She gave us the advice to hit the Brick Builder’s class line FIRST in the middle of the event. That advice led to us having a REMARKABLE time. What we really wanted to do was explore the whole Lego city.
The Brick Builder’s class teaches kids more about the career life of being a Master Builder. The Master Builder class, who was led by Dan this time, taught the kids how he got on the career path he has been working for over 20+ years. He basically encouraged the kids to consider working for LEGO when they got older. Considering Delbert has a strong passion for LEGOs it was nice to see him being encouraged to find a way to make money doing something he loves.
Dan also gave them some pretty neat tips and tricks about building LEGO creations. I even learned what kind of LEGOs to look out for to help enhance Delbert’s LEGO creation designs. I must say that Delbert’s creations have improved since we left LEGO KidsFest.
Other LEGO Stations
They had many other stations all throughout the event covering various kinds of LEGO creation ideas. (Check out the pictures below to get some ideas of what was there.)
There was even added sponsors at the event. All State was there helping parents to learn more about starting up college funds. Connections Academy of NC was there to answer questions about homeschooling kids from home. The Mad Science sponsor was almost as popular as the LEGO stations throughout the event. The lady from Mad Science certainly knows how to make Science fun and entertaining!
Overall, I’d have to say that the LEGO KidsFest is the TRUE FAMILY event. Everywhere I turned the young and OLD alike were having a remarkable time creating magical memories. The woman in the video below captivated Delbert and I’s attention because you could see nothing but pure joy on her face as she was playing with her son and LEGOs. There were so many parents just like her, but you could clearly see that LEGOs brought out the kid in her.
As I stated in that quick video, I HIGHLY recommend taking your kids to LEGO KidsFest if you ever get the chance to do it. It will be an event you’ll remember. Parents if you’re worried about standing all day while your kid plays, rest assured that LEGO has their event set up perfectly because there are chairs around each section for the parents to be able to sit and savor watching their kids play.
