LEGO® KidsFest – Must Do at a Venue Near you!

Build! Build! Build! Today was the last day for the LEGO® KidsFest in Denver, and we were there at this sold-out event.*  What a blast!  I think my older daughter enjoyed it more than my younger one but even the younger one enjoyed the DUPLO® building area.  The event was held at the Convention Center in downtown Denver, April 27-29, and the sessions are 4.5 hours long which is plenty of time to build, race, eat, shop, and even visit the booths.  In fact, for younger kids, I think it was too much time but for older kids, probably not enough.  After all, the sky is the limit on imagination when it comes to building with LEGO® bricks.  There were monochromatic areas (same color LEGO® bricks) and plenty of activities including creating art squares, racing cars, and jumping into a pile of DUPLO® or LEGO® bricks and going to town!

All in all, it was a fun event but crowded! We did not wait in any lines to enter, but certainly the tables were jam packed with kiddos and adults alike who were having a blast.  The Master Build sessions looked like fun but are for older kids, ages 7 and up.  It looked like there were competitions going on, and prizes to be won.  There was a marketplace where you could find and buy your favorite LEGO® sets and they were reasonably priced as well.  The concessions were, well … concessions and at concession prices but the smoothie booth looked like it was a big hit too.  The Convention Center on a Sunday was not tough to get to and parking is on site is $12 but because it was Sunday, you could find plenty of alternate places as well.  Friday may have been a different story unless you got there before rush hour but the parking is ample up and down that area in downtown.

Another fun hit was the Bissell, Perfect Sweep Turbo®  – wow! It was picking up LEGO®  bricks like no one’s business and looked to be great for other cleaning too – it is a sweeper and not a vacuum cleaner but certainly will make those ouchies go away.  I step on my kids’ LEGO® or DUPLO® all the time and we are excited to have this new Perfect Sweep Turbo by Bissell.  And if you don’t believe my review of the Bissell Perfect Sweep Turbo, read these two moms’ reviews and testimonials and make sure you get yours today!  Colorado Moms crowns it the perfect “sticky rice picker upper.”  And Moose and Tater exclaims it as “a LEGO mom’s dream!”  Right now, with the coupon pictured to the left you can get $5 off on-line off by using the code: sweepLEGO- order online and make those ouchies go away.  At our house, my kiddos unplug it and sweep that toy/play area with ease. I love when kids clean up after themselves and this makes cleaning fun!

We had a good time and I would recommend the LEGO®  Kids Fest at a venue near you but get your tickets early.  The Denver shows were three days, and five sessions total and sold out.  Let the building begin….

 

*Thanks to the folks at US FAMILY GUIDE for giving my family the tickets to attend for an honest review and for allowing me to sponsoring a giveaway at my site earlier this month.  Please read Get Clued In’s general disclaimer if you need further information on sponsorship and giveaways.

Denver Museum of Nature & Science- New Lizards & Snakes Exhibit

My eldest reptile

The Lizards Are Here!  I got to join the Mile High Mamas at this amazing event last night at the Denver Museum of Nature and Science and as if the weather wanted us to see these slithery friends, the snow stayed away until it was time to go home.   The Lizards and Snakes exhibit is here until July 8 but it is very well done and there is something of kids and adults of all ages and just like when they did T-Rex, you can take a picture of a giant Boa Constructor named Bo eating you alive- now that’s what I call a gobbling good time! (har har)

My Little Reptiles

So, the third floor special exhibit houses snakes, lizards and yes even our friend from Tangled- remember him? Pascal the lizard.  No, he’s not a frog! Yes you can meet Pascal and then buy all sorts of fun souvenirs afterwards as well.  We got to go tonight which was VIP night and we received a special preview of all the neat things at the exhibit.  There is a craft area where you can make your own lizards bracelets- the kids love them especially little ones.  Then there is the dress-up area where the kids were going nuts!  What fun.  You can see my little reptiles here to the right.  They really had a great time but wait, then there is something for the man who wants to show off too – can your man lift a 100 lb Anaconda? Well, I sure hope so cause mine can.  Most people just walk on it but my husband had to show off.  Okay, maybe I asked him to. See, something for everyone. 

Then, they do shows too in the play/pretend area, there is a fun show for kids and adults to learn more about their reptilian friends. We had a great time and we are so lucky we get to go back.  Did you know, the Denver Museum of Nature & Science does special field trips for schools – they will go out to the schools or have the school trips visit there and the schools get discounts or are free!  And get this- if you are an active military member (active means ACTIVE DUTY, GUARD, RESERVES that are active), show your ID card, you and your family – entire family with you get in for free.  IMAX and special events are extra of course but to the basic museum (discovery zone, space odyssey and even the Reptiles) part is free!

I really love the Denver Museum of Nature and Science and we go just about every weekend.  It is one of the few venues in the Denver area that is pro-military, honors veterans and also gives so much to local schools.  They are a great part of our community.  I can’t wait to get back there and have some more fun with the Reptiles.  Oh and don’t forget as you leave, take a picture with Bo—- if you dare!  Have fun and remember the TRex Cafe in the Museum is reasonably priced and very good food- Healthy options too!
