Birthday of Architect Cass Gilbert

At Home Family Fun:

Little Kids: Get out blocks and design your own buildings.
All Ages: Play a game of Jenga.  If you don’t have a Jenga game, play a reverse Jenga game, taking turns adding blocks to a tower until someone makes it fall.

Outing Idea:

See some Cass Gilbert architecture up close. Examples of his work include:

Minnesota State Capitol

Read Aloud:

On Bookflix watch – This Is the House That Jack Built by Simms Taback, paired with Totally Strange Buildings by Lisa M. Herrington

Dinner Ideas

It’s Tuesday, let’s be taco architects. Everyone gets to build their own taco tonight.
Dinner Conversation Starter: Fun Fact: Cass Gilbert was raised by a single mother and dropped out of high school so he could work, but became one of the most respected architects of his time.
