  • A Little Bit of Nature

    ,

    This was a team effort from both of my kids. The rainbow tree was a fun one they did together, and the hippo was designed while it was being built. I feel that’s important to point out here, to be honest – these builds are all made up as they go along and not based on a picture, instructions, or anything else. I know I’m biased, but I’m continually impressed with my kids…

  • A Cozy Bedroom

    Sometimes you need to build from what you know and something as simple as your bedroom can provide great inspiration. I really love this build that my daughter designed herself and I’m so impressed with how well it came together:

    I really just love everything about this – the girl sitting on the bed is great, the little dogs are very sweet, the functional drawer in the bedside table is neat, and the bookcase makes me happy. Just a wonderful build all around.

    Some more small builds once again inspired by suggestions from Brickit – some fun little ones that I think came together quite well.

    My daughter is currently hard at work on a pretty cool project of her own design, and we received our first build request – very exciting for the kids! Those will be published soon, but if you want to suggest some builds in the meantime, then please do so from this form.

  • Dragon in a Cave

    This dragon was created while we were reading The Hobbit – it is modelled after my daughter’s idea of what Smaug would look like (along with his non-canon baby).

    I especially like how Smaug’s tail sticks through the wall of the cave.

    These are a few small builds inspired by suggestions from the truly magical app, Brickit. If you haven’t tried Brickit, then you really should give it a go. These builds aren’t exactly what the app suggested as it wasn’t 100% accurate with the bricks it scanned, so these are modified versions:

    Artist’s impression of Postman Pat’s cat, Jess:

    I really love how the cat is sitting down with its tail coming round from the back.
