Lego stores in Aventura and Sunrise offer a free project for kids to build and keep. The free Lego Monthly Model Mini Build event is usually the first Tuesday of the month though some stores offer the experience Tuesday and Wednesday. Check with your local store for details. The event is for youngsters ages 6 to 14.
Starting in 2016, the workshops are only open to members of the Lego VIP club, but it’s free to join. You can register online ahead of time: shop.LEGO.com/Minibuild-Registration. Preregistration is now required.
