Be an Architect! An Introduction to Architecture for Children

By Paula Briggs

If you’re looking for a sculptural project which will give children an introduction to architecture, and the opportunity to explore space and structure and interior and exterior, then you’ll like this idea. The key to these sessions is to keep the materials and techniques simple and effective – for example make sure the materials are easy to cut and easy to join together – so that the making inspires, not blocks, the imagination of the children.

Have a go at making these mini-houses and let your imagination run free! Once you start designing and making these buildings you’ll see how you can just keep adding to them to create whole streets (or cities!).
