Build It!

Ever built a house of cards? It’s a great activity for problem solving, communication, and handling disappointments. Help your child build a castle, a pyramid, bridge, house, etc. with just one deck of cards. Encourage them to use their imagination to try different styles and techniques. This task is all about trial and error, allowing them to create their ideas, test them, then find different ways to improve the build. To make it a little easier, try giving them 6 inches of tape to help. They will have to problem solve with the small amount of tape and be sure to stretch it as far as possible to complete the castle!
