We all know how hard it is to talk about death. We are entirely aware of it, but we don’t want to discuss it. For young ones, it’s a difficult thing to think because of their fresh minds. Even though we understand what it costs, our little ones need to understand that death is a natural part of life.
Children can severely be affected if they lost a loved one, but they might not know why it happened. It’s excruciating for them to understand, but it’s essential for them to see that it’s how life goes. Young ones have still non-judgmental minds, and their curiosity is also vivid. We must prepare children for the outcome and for the events that may happen later in our lives.
Here is a picture of a Lego funeral car. It is created to demonstrate what it looks like for children to know. Vienna’s famous cemetery in the Funeral Museum, Bestattungsmuseum was the one who found this idea. They used LEGO kits to visualize the funeral scenes to younger ones.
They came up with a genius idea of creating crematoria made of Lego. Take a look at this picture. It can help the grieving of the kids for the loss of their loved ones and make them understand what’s happening.
Here’s a picture of a Lego-made horse-drawn carriage. Kids can easily understand how funeral works with this sample Lego structure. It’s a great idea and very useful.
