Did you know that you can get LEGOs for free?
We all know that LEGOs can be quite expensive but they are such nifty little toys (for the kids and the kids at heart) that we can’t help but indulge once in a while. If we can get one for free, all the better, right?
LEGO Mini Build
Join LEGO Certified Store’s Monthly Mini Build and you get to take home your creation for FREE! The LEGO Mini Build happens every second and fourth Tuesday and Sunday of the month and is open to kids 4-14 years old.
We were able to try it on the second week of July and here’s how it went.
Be sure to go there early to register (time slots posted below) as slots fill up FAST! When you register, you will be given a stub with your time and number on it. They have a limit of 45 slots per hour.
They can only accommodate 10 kids for each batch. I’m not sure if this is the same number for all branches though.
2. Wait for Your Turn
We were part of the second batch so it wasn’t that long a wait. When it was their turn, the kids were asked to remove their shoes and step inside the matted area. They were each then given their pouch of LEGO Mini Build complete with parts and instructions.
Each batch is given 15 minutes to complete the build. Younger kids (4-5 years old) are allowed to have a guardian assist them during the event. If they cannot finish it within the allotted time, they can just pack it away and continue somewhere else as the next batch will soon follow.
Voila! Their creation! The best part is, they get to continue playing with it even when they get home because it’s theirs already! 🙂
Here are some more photos of that lovely dragonfly! This is the one for July, by the way. Each month’s mini build creation is different.
It looks so nice, doesn’t it?
