FREE LEGO® Store Monthly Mini Model Build! This month: LEGO Jet Ski
On the first Tuesday of each month, LEGO Stores provide a limited quantity of free mini model sets for kids ages 6-14. One free per child while supplies last. Tip from San Antonio mom blogger Sara:

We usually head over right after school–getting there about 3:30 (at least during the school year) works out well–and you’ll be in a good spot in line. The later you arrive, the farther back in line you’ll be but it seems to go pretty quickly. My kids think it’s worth it, so that alone is enough for me! I recommend going with another friend & taking snacks. That way you guys can rotate who is in line with the kids. Also, the employees are really nice about handing out calendars and magazines while you wait.”
