Empire State Building challenge

Both  the boys love building things – and knocking them over! The challenge for my eldest is to get something built before my youngest tries to knock it down! As part of ‘America week’, I printed off a picture of the Empire State Building, and asked my eldest to construct it as best he could out of blocks. For this activity we used wooden blocks, but any sort of blocks would do.

He was pleased with the results, and then set about building a whole New York landscape, with skyscrapers galore.   I was impressed with his imagination!


Hi! I’m Claire, stay-at-home-mum to two gorgeous boys and a lovely girl. My kids are energetic, spirited and full-of-life, and they certainly keep me on my toes. I love spending time with them and seeing them learn and experience new things – I hope that this blog will give you ideas to try out on the children in your life!
