A Day in the Life of a Big Brother

Ever wondered what it’s like to be a volunteer Big Brother? It’s not hard. Just be there for your Little and do things together that you both either like to do or are interested in exploring. Like bowling on a Friday night.

OR, going to Mall of America and checking out the spectacular Lego Store.

All the figures are made with thousands of Lego bricks.

The saber-toothed tiger is about fifteen feet long from head to tail.

This is the King of all Legos at Legoland. About 2.8 million Lego pieces. It is about 30 feet high and weighs about two tons. It took about 110,000 man-hours to complete.

The helicopter is a good 20 feet long. Almost big enough for a human to fly.

Top off the morning with a Cinnabon–Ethan’s first ever, he’s now a huge fan!–and lunch at a local Mexican place, and you have a memorable morning for both Big Brother and Little Brother. It’s all about being there for the kid and letting them be kids for a few hours every month. Think about becoming a Big if you have a few hours a month to spare.
