Structural Engineering

Never underestimate the power of suggestion and modeling to motivate children. We started by creating traps to catch a leprechaun, no such luck I'm afraid, and that has evolved into the creation of zoos, ranches, garages, and houses for our multicultural doll people. When asked they have a reason for every block and accessory placed on their structures. The conversations that take place while they are building are filled with decision making, compromise, problem solving, and strategy. I wish I had video to share with you!

These are amazing! I love seeing the lincoln logs in use. That one log house might get a little crowded :)
