Military children can be an engineer for the day during Month of the Military Child by building their own Lego City hero Saturday at the Fort Leonard Wood Main Exchange.
The Lego “Heroes Needed” event will be from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the main store Disney area and helps military children find their inner heroes while celebrating creativity. This event will allow children to build city scenes to bring out the heroism within them. The Lego kits will come complete with monster trucks, forest tractors, police scenes and beach scenes with families having fun together.
Military children ages 4 and older will receive a certificate for participating.
“Science, technology, engineering and mathematics skills will continue to be in high demand as children grow up,” said Vanessa Rowland, Exchange manager. “It’s an honor to share this activity with our military kids, so they can have fun bringing their imagination to life.”
The Lego “Heroes Needed” event is one of several in-store activities planned by the Army & Air Force Exchange Service in celebration of Month of the Military Child, which every April recognizes the contributions of Warfighters’ children to the armed forces community.
