architecture, construction, and design event for children in Boston


Letters from Past Participants

What a fantastic event!  This was my son Jacob’s first time and he thought it was fantastic. He was the 7 yr old who brought his own blue prints. We enjoyed planning for the event by spending time talking about cities and building designs. Jacob initially made three drawings: a fire station, an airport and a skyscraper. He chose the fire station after talking with the “city planners” at site check in.

The event was terrific from start to finish. Such a positive experience. We’ll be back next year. Maybe you’ll even have t-shirts so we can help advertise this wonderful event. Thank you!

Best regards,
Janie Dretler

“I wanted to send a quick note to say how much my son and I enjoyed the KidsBuild event this weekend!! The entire time we were there (3 hours!) my son kept saying “I am REALLY having fun!” My mom took him back on Sunday so he could see who his “neighbors” were and to pick up our building. He was so proud to show my mom and to bring it home to show his dad and sister. It was so well done, with the building map, and the photo and all the supplies. All of the volunteers were so helpful too. I just wanted to pass along my sincerest thank you to both of you for helping to get us a spot at the last minute, we really are so appreciative. We had a GREAT time. I attached a photo of Toby and the finished product. The grin says it all : ) ”

All the best, Alanna

“Thank you so much! Our students had a wonderful day! I only wish they had more time in which to build their structures.”

“Thank you for providing our students with such an enriching opportunity!”


“Thanks so much for the opportunity for my students to participate in KidsBuild 2011. It was an amazing experience and the kids truly enjoyed every minute of it. They were truly just so excited to be there and enjoyed the entire process of planning, collaborating and building.”

Thanks again, Ms. Eisnitz
