LEGO KidsFest -- October 4-5, 2014, Richmond, VA

I love working with kids so I thoroughly enjoyed serving as event staff at the Lego KidsFest in Richmond, VA. This two-day event was a chance for kids, families, and Lego enthusiasts to play with Lego products and bond over expressing their creativity and fostering their engineering skills and imagination.

 I worked with one other BA to staff the Duplo section, Lego's brand offering featuring larger blocks aimed at small children.

Kids were allowed to build and play with the blocks that were piled on the floor.

Our primary responsibilities for this event were ensuring safety on the festival floor, assisting kids and families with locating pieces, and resetting the station at the end of the first five-hour session to prepare for the second influx of visitors. After refilling the bins on the tables, we piled the rest of the Legos on the floor using snow shovels. It was a blast! For more information, check out Lego KidsFest at http://legokidsfest.com.
