Talking to your young kids about online safety can be tough. I saw this article on Lifehacker andÂ I thought it was neat.
LEGO has created three free activities with multiple imaginative characters for kids to build; each character represents the positive and negative experiences kids may have online.Â You donâ€™t need to buy specific LEGO packs to build these charactersâ€”you can use any bricks you already have. You can try to make your builds match LEGOâ€™s versions as closely as you can, or simply use them as inspiration to create your own versions of a â€œchatterbox,â€ a â€œmultiplayerâ€ or a â€œgigglerâ€ while also tackling topics like managing screen time, in-game purchases, phishing, scamming, bullying and privacy.
You can find printable PDFs of all three types of â€œonline explorers,â€ as well as all the nefarious â€œwatch-outâ€ characters on LEGOâ€™s Build and Talk website.Â Or check out the full article on Lifehacker.com.
