About Us


My name is Jacob Lett and I am the creator of UpliftingPlay™ and this website. UpliftingPlay’s mission is to help young families be creative, learn together, and raise children with strong character. My wife and I started this business to prepare for our own family and give help and encouragement to other young families.

Below are some of the things you can do here.


The playroom is a growing collection of creative resources for you and your family. You can do things like: download word lists of things to draw, draw a picture using the online sketchpad, view a gallery of featured drawings, and print out coloring and activity worksheets.


The UpliftingPlay store contains products to help your family stay inspired and develop your creativity. Currently the only product we offer is an ebook titled Drawing Ideas™. This ebook is full of over 100 drawing ideas with visual reference. Unlike other drawing books, Drawing Ideas does not show your child how to draw but encourages them to draw what they see in the photographs.


This area of the website allows us to have a conversation and discuss various topics you and your family are interested in. Some of the topics I plan on sharing are: looking at the various forms of play, understanding the importance of art education, outlining best practices in teach art to children, and how to instill strong character in children. If this information is something you would be interested in please subscribe to the email list.

Lastly, this website is for you. If you ever have any comments, questions, or suggestions please don’t hesitate to email me. I would love to hear from you.
