Let’s build something

Think your kids might like to see a life-size model of Batman made entirely from LEGOs? You too? The whole family can get their LEGO fix at LEGO KidsFest starting at 4 pm Friday, October 12, with activities for all ages through Sunday, October 14. It’s one of only six events of its kind nationwide this year, and the only one that’s an easy drive from Ann Arbor. Young children can stack and sort at the DUPLO Build Area. Kids five and up can play at the LEGO Construction Zone or explore Heartlake City, home of the LEGO Friends. Older kids are challenged to think like an architect at the LEGO Master Builder Academy, learning the fundamentals of design, engineering and art using LEGO bricks. Bring the family for some hands-on, creative fun!

LEGO KidsFest starts at 4pm October 12 and 9 am October 13 and 14. Tickets are free for children under 2, $18 for kids up to 17 and seniors, $20 for adults. Suburban Collection Showplace, 46100 Grand River, Novi. legokidsfest.com
