LEGO Love Week 7: LEGO Field Trips

I mentioned last week that we are planning a special LEGO field trip.  So today I thought I would share a list of possible LEGO field trip destinations with you!

LEGOLAND Amusement Parks 
The amusement parks are themed, interactive parks with many rides, shows and attractions.  They are family oriented, geared for children 2-12.  They each offer unique opportunities, that might include water parks, aquariums and/or botanical gardens.  Most of them are also resorts, with a LEGOLAND Hotel that has themed rooms, children's entertainment and special LEGO features throughout the hotel and early access to the park.  While I haven't checked the international locations, I know the US parks offer Home School Days with special educational material!

LEGOLAND California Resort
LEGOLAND Billund Resort
LEGOLAND Deutschland Resort
LEGOLAND Windsor Resort
LEGOLAND Malaysia Resort

LEGOLAND Discovery Centers
The Discovery Centers are indoor attractions for families.  The different locations have opportunities for building, as well as LEGO MINILAND, 4D cinema shows, rides, Minifigure trading, Toddler Tuesdays, and so much more.
LEGOLAND Discovery Center Atlanta

LEGOLAND Discovery Center Dallas/Forth Worth

LEGO Store Mini Model Builds
Each month, stores offer monthly mini model builds where you can come in and build a mini LEGO set for free. You can search for the store closest to you to view their calendar.  If you can't make it in, they also offer the exclusive instructions online.

LEGO Kids Fest
The LEGO Kids Fest is a 3-day family friendly event that is full of hands-on, interactive and educational activities.  You can build and create, meet Master Builders, play LEGO games, and see life-sized LEGO creations.  KidsFest tours each year, and the activities may vary from one city to the next.  The 2014 Tour includes the following locations:  North Carolina, Michigan, Calgary, AB Canada, Georgia, Texas, Virginia and Indiana.

Toy and Plastic Brick Museum
The Toy and Plastic Brick Museum
This is a not an official LEGO museum; it is actually an old middle school that houses a large private collection of LEGO.  You can read an article about the museum on Roadside America.

Virtual LEGO Field Trip
Not close enough to any of these destinations?  You can watch this short video to see how LEGO pieces are made!  Both boys have watched this a few times, but my 7 year old has particularly enjoyed it.

If you know of any other LEGO themed field trips, please let me know!  We're always looking for new ways to expand our LEGO Love!
