The PlayPack- Opportunities for Kids to Play and Create for a Better Future

Our product is designed to aid Syrian children in Lebanese Refugee Camps. In this situation, children have no opportunity to explore their passions and creativity, as well as they are deprived of toys and thus cannot spend time being kids and playing. The PlayPack, distributed to these children, would include a durable and lightweight backpack that includes an assortment of toys and items to entertain and inspire these children. In this backpack, there would be toys such as large wooden blocks with pictures on them, picture books, a stuffed animal, a doll, stacking cups, and finally a paper pad with different colored crayons.

Our PlayPack would allow kids to have a storage unit that is easily transportable and can be used for other means, and all of the toys included in the PlayPack will help the children develop a healthy brain and mind by engagining in creative processes. We would hope to receive donations from communities and organizations for the toys and backpacks, however we would need to further explore what the Lebanese refugee community really needs. 

Is this an idea that you or your organization would like to take forward?

Hi Claire!

Interesting idea! I'm curious – why have you chosen Syrian children in Lebanese refugee camps?
