It's Just For Fun Friday! On JFFF, we review items and activities that you can do with your kids in order to increase their cultural competence and diversity awareness.
This week's item is LEGOS!!!! I mean, it doesn't get any better. Anyone else out there have a child who is completely Lego obsessed? My son is - it's pretty much his favorite activity and I know a ton of other kiddos who feel the same way. So this is a great way to infuse some diversity into your child's play without it feeling forced. I mean, they're going to be playing with Legos anyway, why not give them people to play with who are more representative of the population? This is the Lego Education Duplo World People Set. Basically, it's a diverse group of Lego people so that when your child builds castles or houses or parks or anything else with their Lego Duplos, they can put all different types of people in those scenes. So cool.
After you watch the video, print out the page below for a quick reference guide on the Legos and suggestions for ways to use it. There's also a link below to buy this set.
How did your child play with the Legos? Did they gravitate towards a certain person? What did you notice about how your child played with these people? Leave a comment below.
Most of all, enjoy. And don't forget to HAVE FUN!
Check back next week for another Just For Fun Friday!
