If you're heading to Tahoe this summer and your kid is a LEGO fan (and really, what kid isn't?), you need to check out the LEGO Summer Brickation in South Lake Tahoe. Play and build with LEGOs for free, in a beautiful location. Need I say more? Okay, I will. You can help create a LEGO Lake Tahoe mosaic, get photos with life-size LEGO models, and have races on the LEGO ramp.
If you go:
When: July 25 through September 4, 2012
Where: 1001 Heavenly Village Way, South Lake Tahoe
WIN LEGO PRIZE PACK
Whether or not you go, you can win a LEGO prize pack, which contains 10 Bricks to Click and LEGO Club Jr. Magazine (sample prize packs pictured below). I wasn't familiar with 10 Bricks to Click, but it's a little bag with 10 bricks (duh!), however there are many things you can actually make with 10 bricks - and the instructions give you some ideas. And here's a secret - even if you don't win, you can get a 2 year subscription to the Lego Club Magazine for free.
To win the LEGO prize package, leave a comment below, sharing something about your LEGO history. Did you play with LEGOs as a child? Is your child a fanatic? Did you end up in the hospital when stepping on LEGOs left on the floor in the middle of the night?
I'll choose a winner at random (using random.org) on July 30 at 6 p.m. PST. Make sure to leave your email address so I can get in touch with you if you win (if you don't want to leave your email address on the comment, you can send it to me at contest (at) friscokids.net and tell me which comment is yours). You'll need to respond back within 24 hours or I'll go on to the next winner.
If you're going to Lake Tahoe in winter, especially with toddlers, here is a post to check out.

Disclosure: I was compensated for this post. My son is such a huge LEGO fan that the compensation will almost certainly be used to buy him more LEGOs. If my son has his way.
