BrickCan, Public Lego Exhibition is coming to Vancouver! + #Giveaway

BrickCan

Be still my Lego loving heart, when I heard that BrickCan was coming to Vancouver I will openly admit I might have squealed a little bit! I have been a Lego lover for as long as I can remember. I have fond memories of a giant rubbermaid full of a mish-mash of different lego pieces and spending hours building cities, skyscrapers and pretty much everything in between. When I had Alivia, I knew one of the things that would quickly become a staple in our house – was of course Lego!

Lego encourages fine motor skills, problem solving, imagination and of course, it helps develop a “Maker” mentality. Be it an engineer, an architect, children see their vision long before those pieces come together.
