Wooden board, glue, wooden spools, pieces of wood
Give children spools and pieces of wood and glue. Let them glue the wooden pieces onto a wooden board (the size of a game board). They will glue both tall towers and little neighborhoods. Older children might want to paint or decorate the pieces of wood before beginning. You will use lots of glue and have lots of fun! If you have an older child, you can have them create a miniature of your city, including your neighborhood and downtown skyscrapers.
