I'm a great fan of K'NEX building sets, and have reviewed them here in the past.
Now they are running a contest for kids up to 12 years old. But I wish I were young enough to enter myself, because the K'NEXpert building contest sounds like so much fun!
Here's how it works: kids create original K'NEX models and submit them for a chance to win fantastic prizes, including $10,000 Savings Bonds, 500 piece K'NEX building sets, a free trip to New York and a Tour of K'NEX Headquarters! And that's not even the full list!
Last year’s Grand Prize Winner designed an amazing 6,500-Piece (!) Roller Coaster based on a dragon theme, entitled “Belly of the Beast.” You've got to see his entry; check out the video here.
This year, K’NEX is expanding the contest to include three Grand Prize winners from these age groups: 5 - 6, 7 -8, and 9 to 12 years-old.
Have a budding builder in your home? Check out all the great prizes here: Becoming A K'NEXpert. Look for more K'NEX posts here on Cool Moms Rule soon!
