For years I have followed Maker Faires across the country, although I have only ever 'attended' online. I have never actually been to one... until today. My son and I headed out Union Station here in Kansas City to see for ourselves what all the making is about. Our favorite was all the robots! We made our own out of Legos More robots out of cardboard We met the coolest robots of them all, R2D2. My 4 year old son was a bit skeptical of his realistic movements and noises, but I felt like I was 4 years old again! Made me bust out in C3P0 imitation. (not pictured below) There was a great station for kids making whatever they wanted... reminded me a lot of Playful Factory. We had a blast and will be going back next year!
