Brick Fest Live at The New York Hall of Science #BrickfestNYSCI #BrickfestLive
This past weekend we attended Brick Fest Live at The New York Hall of Science (NYSCI) and had SO much LEGO themed fun.
Note: As media, I received tickets to review the exhibit. No other compensation was received. Views expressed are always 100% my own.
We enjoyed spending time at building stations, playing gaming, and checking out the variety of hands-on activities using LEGO bricks. Here's a quick recap of how we spent our day.
Our first stop was the Brick Fest Derby, where my son build his own LEGO derby car and then raced it along with other kids down a 35-foot long timed track. We didn't win but it was still lots of fun!
Our next stop was the Glow Zone to see LEGOS that shine under ultra-violet light in the dark. Lots of fun designs including creatures from the sea, air and land.
Before leaving this section we made sure to add a LEGO addition to the board.
On our way to the next Brick Fest Live activities, we stopped to play some LEGO video games. It's always fun to play video games with my son. Even if he always beats me. Shesh.
In the next area we visited Inspiration Stations to add our LEGO creations to existing LEGO cities. It was exciting to be part of a bigger build.
Then we tried answering LEGO trivia questions to win a prize but the competition was fierce. So many people knew lots of LEGO bricks history!
Since trivia didn't seem to be our thing, we decided to move on and make mosaics using colorful LEGO bricks. While I went there for my son to make one, I ended up joining him. It was such a fun activity.
After making our mosaics, we added them to the wall, along with others, to create a unique and creative wall of artwork.
Soon we had to head home, but not before my son added a few pieces to the LEGO red brick pieces. This was a large area to build using only red bricks. It was so packed!
This is just a few of the activities families could enjoy. You can literally spent ALL day at Brick Fest Live at The New York Hall of Science. If your child is a LEGO fan then they'll love Brick Fest Live.
