LEGO Celebrates Canada’s 150th with a Challenge

As you may have already seen on my social media platforms, we are a big LEGO-loving family. We introduced the boys to LEGO Duplo the moment they had enough dexterity and, of course, they have moved up to classic LEGO pieces and sets. They love sitting and taking the time to create things from their imagination, as much as they love following the instructions in hard and detailed sets. Right now, they are diligently getting through the LEGO Disney Castle, and let me tell you, that is one incredible project! Aside from the castle, the boys constantly have other creations being made and remade, and our basement has basically turned into a LEGO creations room. I love it.

Here are a few examples:

(L-R): Future Canada will have more trees and country homes, a musical car with a piano player, more rivers for animals.

To celebrate Canada’s 150th year, LEGO has set up a challenge for Canadian children. Without any instructions, LEGO is asking children across Canada to get creative and use their imagination to build the future of Canada. LEGO wants to see what children can imagine for better, brighter and even more fun Canadian cities!

To kick things off, Toys’R’Us stores across Canada had a special event recently where children were able to come in and build in the store. Each store that participated ended the weekend with their own City of Tomorrow that they have on display.

LEGO Contest with a Grand Prize Trip!

LEGO has a giant contest going on encouraging children to build something out of their own minds for the City of Tomorrow. Take a picture of your creation and enter the contest by clicking here. The winner will receive a grand prize trip for four to Ottawa! The deadline to enter the LEGO City of Tomorrow contest is June 4, 2017.60134_Box1_naGiveaway for Mama MOE Readers!
