It’s amazing how easy it is to assemble a simple street scene or even a whole town using these basic building block shapes and a little bit of ingenuity. Be creative and watch what happens. Stack two brownstones on top of each other and you’ve got a high-rise. Want a more suburban feel? Turn a brownstone on its side and you’ve made a ranch-style house. Throw in some toy cars and other props and you’ve found a way to occupy a couple of rambunctious kids on a rainy afternoon. Use these ideas or look around at buildings and houses in your neighborhood to find your own sources of inspiration. Caution: It’s easy to get completely carried away with this project!
