Military children can be an engineer for the day during Month of the Military Child by building their own Lego City hero April 7 at the Joint Base San Antonio-Lackland, JBSA-Randolph and JBSA-Fort Sam Houston Main Exchanges.

The Exchanges are helping military kids find their inner heroes and celebrate creativity during a special event for Month of the Military Child.


The Lego “Heroes needed” event will be from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. April 7 at the JBSA-Lackland BxTra, JBSA-Randolph Main Store, and JBSA-FOrt Sam Houston PxTra toy department.

This event will allow children to use their creativity to build city scenes to bring out the heroism within them. The kits will come complete with monster trucks, forest tractors, police scenes and beach scenes with families having fun together.


Military children ages 4 and older,will receive a certificate for participating.


“Science, technology, engineering and mathematics skills will continue to be in high demand as children grow up,” said Exchange General Manager Marc Floyd. “It’s an honor to share this activity with our military kids, so they can have fun bringing their imagination to life.” 


The Lego “Heroes Needed” event is one of several in-store activities planned by the Army & Air Force Exchange Service in celebration of Month of the Military Child, which every April recognizes the contributions of Warfighters’ children to the armed forces community.
