LEGO Fun for Long Island Kids
Let kids build some fun of their own one brick at a time at one of these Long Island's play places that specializes in Lego fun.
Kids of all ages get a chance to design and create their own masterpieces in a variety of classes, and there's also the chance to hold birthday parties and special events at certain locations. Also, check your local library listings for drop in clubs and open builds! For other extra curricular ideas, check out our Camps & Classes guide.
