    Lego Friends Snow Fun

    July 5, 2017

    Recently I travelled to Thredbo for a girls weekend with my daughter Lottie.  It was so nice to have some time together and lots of fun in the snow. These school holidays Lego Friends are running an awesome snow festival and  have lots of awesome activities for kids. The Lego Friends Play zone in the Kosciusko room at the Thredbo Alpine Hotel was a favourite of Lottie’s. We spent hours in there creating with Lego friends. Everything from colouring in, making key rings, watching lego shows on tv and of course building our own Lego Friends creations.

    Out in the snow I loved the amazing ice sculpture art and cute Lego Friends Snow hunt. Thredbo is really set up so well for families. We had everything we needed within close proximity. We hired all our ski gear at Thredbo and I even had my first skiing lesson. It went a lot better than I thought.  It was lots of fun. Im glad I gave it a try. Its always good to push yourself outside your comfort zone.

    There are lots of dining options at Thredbo ranging from bakeries, bistros and restaurants. Lottie and I loved sharing some warm donuts in the snow, washed down with hot chocolate. Such a nice moment to snuggle and share together. Before we left we managed to squeeze in some toboggan races. So much fun and lots of laughs!

    It was a two hour drive back to Canberra to catch our flight back to Melbourne. It was a whirlwind trip, but it was packed with lots of fun and snow memories to last a lifetime.

    note. Lottie and I were guests of Lego.
