Big props to these guys....

DIY is an online community for kids. We give kids tools to collect everything they make as they grow up and a place to share it.

We've all seen how kids can be like little MacGyvers. They're able to take anything apart, recycle what you've thrown away — or if they're Caine, build their own cardboard arcade. This is play, but it's also creativity and it's a valuable skill.

Our idea is to encourage it by giving kids a place online to show it off, so family, friends and grandparents can see it and easily respond. Recognition makes a kid feel great, and motivates them to keep going. We want them to keep making, and by doing so learn new skills, use technology constructively, begin a lifelong adventure of curiosity, and hopefully spend time offline, too.

What a cool idea. Curiosity and appreciation are the best gifts you can give a kid.
