Way back when I posted about the Bible Bee coming to this area, and the time has arrived. That post has consistently drawn numerous hits, so I wanted to make sure all interested readers were aware of the opportunities this weekend right here in the Chicago area.
Event begin on Thursday and roll through Saturday. Even if you did not prepare to participate in a Bible Bee, everyone can join the activities surrounding this national finals event. Tickets for various events and meal can be purchased online in advance.
In addition to the actual bee, activity bands are sold that cover admission to the other games and activities. Their website offers this description:
Please purchase one for each sibling, relative or guest for their unlimited access to the following exciting activities during open hours Friday and Saturday:
Lego Experience by Legoland
Join in a team challenge to build a replica of Chicago’s Sears Tower, or to build a useable Lego chair! Make and take small projects, build and play with more Legos, and purchase additional Lego sets.
This two-man, quick-draw competition will challenge the speed of your reflexes. First come, first serve; each turn last 5 to 7 minutes each.
Come express your creativity together for a quieter activity. Make and take a variety of small craft projects. Appropriate crafts available for all ages from 2:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. on Friday, and from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. on Saturday.
Family Fun Area
Explore the park-themed place to play with a huge inflatable crawl-through caterpillar, park benches, tables set with chess and checkers, foosball and more!
Little Bee Playroom
Filled with age-appropriate playthings, the Playroom offers a safe space for the youngest members of your family to have fun with parents and older siblings.
If you can’t make it in person, their website says it will offer a webcast beginning with events on November 11. This might be a great opportunity to motivate kids for next year to begin learning their verses and hide God’s Word in their hearts.
Check out all the details on this soon to begin event at the Bible Bee website.
