Keep the temple in mind with this fun, family-friendly activity


If there's a gift that works for both the boys and girls in your family—and keeps everyone equally entertained—most parents would be thrilled. Gender norms aside, building sets are great entertainment for boys and girls, teens and adults.

Brick’Em Young building kits are not only popular among all age groups, but of all the photos submitted to them, nearly half are built by girls, moms and even grandmothers!

So whether you want a good STEM activity for your child or something to keep your teens engaged on Sundays, Brick'Em Young building sets are a great way to spend time together building family memories.

Especially these days, it's important that kids learn about the significance of the temple. Keep your kids actively thinking about temple worship with building sets such as Salt Lake, Mesa, Oakland, Provo City Center, Logan, Manti, St. George, Idaho Falls, Cardston Canada, Las Vegas and Laie Hawaii temples.

The larger temple sets take anywhere from 3-6 hours, depending on the design. A smaller Salt Lake Temple set is also available for younger builders with build time of an hour.

In 2018 Brick'Em Young started selling a traditional-style nativity. While visiting Temple Square during the Christmas season, the creators of Brick’Em Young also noticed varying international style nativities on the temple grounds. This inspired them to expand beyond the traditional nativity and create two international style nativities: African and Asian. These nativities are not meant to depict the actual circumstances surrounding the birth of the Savior, but rather show how this marvelous event might be understood by another culture similar to the displays at Temple Square. This Christmas season Brick’Em Young is offering a Buy 1 Get 1 Free on these international style Nativities.


In addition to their temple sets, Brick’Em Young released a variety of bible figurines, including Noah's Ark, Jonah and the Whale and Moses figurines — perfect for the current "Come, Follow Me" focus on the Old Testament.
