Play is the single most important activity young children engage in, it’s even scientifically proven to improve cognitive development, spatial awareness, and more. However, in many developing countries, children don’t have access to proper toys to play with. As a result, many children find ways to build their own toys from discarded objects. Play Finds a Way celebrates creativity while giving access to higher-quality play by converting DIY toys made by underprivileged children into Lego sets. These Lego sets were then sold in developed nations with the proceeds going back to the communities.
