One of our Play-Well students, Curtis, did something really amazing and generous for his mom. She needed a teaspoon holder, so he built one out of LEGO. His act of kindness and creativity inspired us to create the Thankful Kids LEGO Project.
Every holiday season, parents work really hard to make the holidays extra special for their kids. One of our students reminded us that kids can make any day special for their parents too. So, we have created a project where kids can show how thankful they are through their ingenuity, creativity, and a little bit of LEGO. It inspired other kids to want to participate.
“I just wanted to share with you my amazing godson Steven Taylor invention for our electronic toothbrushes. Recently we bought electronic toothbrushes but haven’t been able to leave it in the bathroom because there really isn’t a holder for them…He thought it would be helpful for him to build us a holder out of Legos small enough to fit around the sink and also look cool…well without any hesitation he came up with an amazing toothbrush holder in under ten minutes and put little cute details around it like a robot and a flame behind the toothbrush…Amazing..we are so very proud of him and very thankful for his thoughtfulness.
A child built a LEGO Vacuum Cleaner for his mom for the Thankful Kids LEGO Project.
Here is how kids can do this:
- Thank your parents for everything they do. This can be done throughout the holidays.
- Ask your parents how you can help, perhaps by building something they need out of LEGO.
- Build the project out of LEGO.
- Post it on our Play-Well Facebook Page, tweet it to us, or email it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We will share all of the projects that kids make throughout all of November and December in an album and a video that we will share around the country.
