SCIENCE FUN FACTS: This is a great craft for kids to understand structure and design. Amazing activity to recognize concepts of space, architecture, and fun to do with friends, individually or for parties!
STEP 1: Build the base using popsicle sticks
Start putting together the wooden blocks and Lego pieces. Make sure you build around the tea light so that you can have space for the tea light to fit in the center.
Start gluing the Lego pieces and the wooden blocks onto your popsicle base. Ensure you have an adult help with the hot glue gun.
STEP 4: This serves great as a night-light. Building a structure with the Lego pieces as high as you want. Show it off!
