“This keeps my kids busy and surprisingly more away from a screen than I thought! Video games have been replaced with drawing, building with LEGO and science experiments... and we’re just getting started. So worth it!”
"We signed up for a 14-day trial, but soon realized we were here to stay. Our kids are engaged, they’re creative and the staff makes the whole thing fun. They love interacting with other DIYers and we feel like it's a safe place for them to do it. DIY.org is exactly what this family needed."
These families discovered DIY.org, a huge library of hands-on projects, how-to videos, and an awesome Learning Community™ where kids can safely share online. There’s something for every kid: Art, Photography, Slime, Minecraft, Machines, Sewing, LEGO®, Animation, Cooking, Singing, Coding … you know, the stuff that makes the world great!
The thing that makes DIY.org different from all other screen time is that your kids will get inspired by other kids who love learning and share their passion and curiosity.
With DIY, any kid anywhere can learn any skill.
We have a new name! And a bunch of new members!
We merged our two awesome learning communities - DIY.org and JAM.com - into one super learning platform for kids and we’re calling the whole thing DIY!
Wait, did you really think we’d release a new version and only change the name? Not us! Here are some epic new features:
– XP is back! The number next to your avatar indicates how much experience you’ve gained on DIY.
– For each challenge you try you can earn experience for some of the 120+ skills available.
– There’s a new tab in your portfolio to keep an eye on, you can track the skills in which you’ve gained experience.
Have fun exploring, and let us know which skill is your favorite.
We also fixed a bug causing the wrong post to open when tapping on a notification.
Ratings and Reviews
Great, but could use some editing.
The new D.I.Y is a wonderful app. I love the community, the rules, just everything and everyone. BUT, that dose not mean this app is perfect. No app is perfect. My first suggestion is to actually give penalties to rude D.I.Yer’s. They are out there, you know. There are also some things I would like to be added back. On the original D.I.Y you could search of usernames, posts, etc.
but on the NEW D.I.Y there isn’t an option to do that. PLUS, now you even need photo library access to do challenges. Here’s another thing; posts take LONGGGGG to compress/upload. Anyway, that’s it for now. But don’t get me wrong, this app is great! It just needs some editing, like any other app. :)
Developer Response ,
Hi there! You should be able to post from your iPhone/iPad and we'll help get this fixed for you. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll figure this out 👍
This is AMAZING!
I have been on JAM for about a year now and it’s AMAZING! They are making awesome improvements, and so many new packs do try out! Although it costs money... it’s totally worth buying because you learn new things and you can do your dream job by doing one of these lessons!
But to the creators to JAM... maybe add some challenges to JAM! Like a weekly art challenge, or try and cook food with this ingredient! And the winners could either get a prize sent to there house or a collection in the app! It’s just a idea, I see that the app is still in development so do take your time on it to make this the best app anyone could be on! 🤗
Even great for my 3 year old
Some of my three year olds favorite things are legos, machines, and science experiments. We watch the videos together and even though he’s not old enough to make the slimes by himself or build the cardboard machines he loves the videos and then he loves me setting up the projects for him to interact with. I love the LEGO, strange science, and invent your own machine courses and I’m excited to check out a few of the others. I’m so happy to have such well done lessons for him and I to both enjoy when we need an activity. Even after one week I’ve seen his inventiveness with his toys multiply.
