Lego Building Sibling Day
Siblings gathered together at Galada Community Centre in Epping for a Lego themed day building blocks and connections.
The kids got creative, designing their very own masterpiece replica lego clay figurines, and enjoying some lego themed colouring in. After a delicious pizza lunch, Bricks 4 Kidz delivered a hands on lesson, so everyone could maximise their day and learn some important co-operation and teamwork skills. They were taught different techniques including; 3D lego, mosaic lego and technic lego. The latter being the most popular, as teams worked together to create battery powered merry-go-rounds.
Days like this Sibling Day aim to support children who have a brother or sister with a life-limiting condition, or who has died. It offers kids who may be experiencing a sense of isolation, a safe space to feel understood and meet other children supported by Very Special Kids. One sibling shared,
‘I like coming to meet other kids and I love playing with lego’
Parents shared their excitement to see the return of Sibling Day programs, and the positive impact and joy it brings to their children’s lives.
‘It is so nice to see her smiling and being around other kids that just get it’
‘Thank you for having her she had a really good time and enjoyed herself’
