I am honored to have Stephanie from The Gathered Kitchen guest posting on the blog today. I was given tickets to attend this event but soccer tryouts prevented us from going. So Stephanie agreed to cover the event for me. This looks like it was an amazing time and I hate that we had to miss it. But I am just glad that Stephanie was able to attend.
Lego KidsFest came to Charlotte, NC and it was a blast! There were so many incredible Lego figures, games, and prizes! You definitely didn't have to be a kid to enjoy the event!
The event took place downtown Charlotte, NC at the Charlotte Convention Center.
Immediately entering the fest you were greeted by a massive Lego structure of the Lego man himself!
There were famous kid characters all over built out of Legos. It was truly incredible how people were able to create these life-sized characters out of the teeny tiny Lego pieces!
Gardens of the Galaxy
Lego Disney Princess
There were Challenge Centers set up throughout the exhibit. The challenges all varied, but they were all about building with creativity and utilizing various pieces from different Lego collections.
This challenge was really neat. You were grouped in teams of 5. In a relay form, one person at a time ran down and dug through a bin of purple Legos (moon rocks) and searched for pieces of the rocket ship that we were to build. Once all of the five pieces were collected you were to assemble them together and then run it back down to the moon rocks and crash!
At the end of each challenge, you were given a Lego pack as a prize!
There was a great section on the floor of Duplos for all of the little Lego enthusiasts to play with.
Building stations were spread throughout the exhibit as well that inspired kids to be creative with their building.
An art exhibit featured Lego markers which the kids had a blast coloring with!
All in all the Lego exhibit was really incredible. The displays were so fun to look at and admire. The centers and challenges were perfect for keeping kids engaged and to have the opportunity to play with Legos sets that they may not have! I would highly recommend going to the nearest Lego KidsFest to you! Your kids will love it!
