Lego Creation Nation

Legos are the eighth wonder of the world. Legos are imaginative and creative. Legos are ingenious and inspirational. Legos are the only item on both my children’s wish list for every holiday and birthday.


For all you Lego-Lovers out there, come to Gurnee Mills (6170 W. Grand Ave, Gurnee IL) for this free event that requires no reservations. On Friday October 17th from 10 a.m.-9 p.m., Saturday October 18th from 10 a.m. – 9:30 p.m. and Sunday October 19th from 11 a.m. – 7 p.m. you’re invited to Creation Nation: A Lego Master Builder Event to create a US Map. You’ll be able to help build city and landscape scenes which will be used to fill a 25’ by 25’ map of the United States. Kids of all ages are welcome to put their imaginations to work and show off their creativity!

Legos are better than TV, really they are the best indoor activity; well, second only to building a giant fort out of pillows and blankets, because, really, that’s always awesome. Legos aren’t sticky. Legos don’t stain. Legos are fun alone or with a friend. Legos are a great activity in silence or with background noise. Legos come in all colors, shapes and sizes; just like people.

The best part about the Creation Nation fantastic building event being at Gurnee Mills instead of at your house is you won’t step on a Lego barefoot. Have you ever done that? If so, you’ll agree the pain is worse than childbirth or a broken heart. But everything is awesome (did the song just get stuck in your head? sorry!) when batman rides a pirate ship to meet Indiana Jones and fly in the Millennium Falcon to save the construction site from a dinosaur invasion.

Usually I don’t think material things can create happiness, but I have seen otherwise in my children’s eyes at the Lego store. With my children being 5 years apart, I love the age range of Legos, they are beloved by both my 7 year old and 12 year old, and have been for years! I hope to see you at Gurnee Mills October 17-19 for this Lego-riffic event!
