LEGO Classes in Cleveland

Ok, so my 4 1/2 year old is a bit young to be taking Lego classes, although he’d probably jump at the chance if he could.    But, I know that someday we’ll need to sign him up for one, and I keep coming across them in various places, so thought I’d create a list for anyone who’s children love Lego’s as much as mine (and the hubby and I) do.
