Lego KidsFest, Atlanta, Building Memorie…     by Pam Wattenbarger - Oct 15th, 2017
My kids have always been big fans of Legos; begging for them whenever we went to the store. I usually gave in because they would throw in the “But’s it’s educational and encourages creativity” speech. Who was I to deny them educational opportunities? Plus, I had to admit it encouraged creativity, even if it was just in their sales pitch to me. Naturally, when given an oppor… read full review here
