LEGO Build a Star and Make a Difference this Holiday Season with LEGO #BuildtoGive


The holiday season is upon us, and LEGO Group is giving back with their 5th Annual Build to Give campaign! 



Grab some LEGO bricks and create a festive star with LEGO's Build to Give initiative! There is no right or wrong way to build your star, but if you need some motivation check out these easy tips to build to give. Your LEGO Build to Give star will help bring LEGO play to 1.5 million children around the world.  



Change it up and build multiple stars to share on social media with the hashtag #BUILDTOGIVE

With every LEGO brick star created and shared on social media through December 2021, LEGO will donate a LEGO set to a child in need— giving children in need all over the world the ability to create and explore with LEGO bricks. Create your own LEGO star and share with hashtag: #BuildtoGive now to join in on the magic and fun of this wonderful initiative.






I’m excited to be apart of this and happy to share my little Starman LEGO star! No child should be without basic needs to flourish and grow—LEGO fosters the imagination, builds confidence, and even strengthens problem solving.

⭐️ Happy Holidays! ⭐️

Fans of The Loud House will love the new season and enjoy every episode on the new Season 3, Volume 3 The Loud House two-disc set! My son love The Loud House, and he was glued to the TV watching the new adventures of The Loud family.

This new season touches on loving family moments, tales of triumph and hard work, and always learning and growing together as a family.  

Thank you so much Nickelodeon and Paramount Home Entertainment for sending us a copy to watch, and one to share with our readers! All opinions are my own. 

With one boy and 10 girls, poor Lincoln is always running to or running from the action, but in this season the Loud family rallies together to help their dad with the new restaurant, Lynn's Table. Talented Luna enters a songwriting contest, Lucy is trying to scare Lincoln and Clyde silly, Lori and Bobby unite their families for a big Thanksgiving dinner, and so many more! You also may recognize Bobby from the fun show and spin-off, The Casagrandes!
