Interactive video lesson plan for: Clifford the Big Red Dog® BE BIG 2010 Contest Winner -- Build-A-Bed

Activity overview:

Shelly and her team had a very BIG Idea to develop a Build-A-Bed program, making sure more people are able to experience a good night's sleep. By building beds and providing items to promote safe sleep and calming bedtime rituals, they hope to improve the bedtime routines and sleep quality of Kentucky children, bring communities together to tackle a shared challenge, recognize and capitalize on local communities' and individuals' strengths and expertise, and empower volunteers with new skills and confidence.

In May of 2009, the first Build-A-Bed project was held with over 100 volunteers around the state helping to build and deliver 57 twin-size beds with mattresses and 'bedtime bags' to help Kentucky children sleep better. In 2010, the "Build-A-Bed" project was held as a 24-hour "build blitz". AmeriCorps members and community volunteers came together to build over 500 twin-size beds.

With the help of the BE BIG in Your Community Contest grant, Shelly and her team is able to increase the reach of Build-A-Bed, helping children and families get a good night's rest.
