Some Famous Buildings


Pictures of famous buildings from old dictionaries.  This will give you some idea of what builders can begin to mimic by the age of 7 or so.  Younger children will make more primitive structures, but they still like to build things and will gradually develop skills as they proceed.  (These projects may require additional pieces from Open Stock or from Booster Sets that are not included in the regular kits).
