Another toy of my youth was Lincoln Logs. There's something about these logs that are very entertaining. Endless opportunities to build.
The easiest thing I have found for construction of a log home is to get the pieces assorted.
I will admit that there was initially a fight to grab all the big pieces because that's a requirement for a house but surprisingly one child took off in a different creative spin.
A rocket was made!
Then all of a sudden I had a parking lot full of cars. My imagination as a child never went to these two creative spots.
The foundation needs to be laid down.
Keep in mind where your property is going to be because you can't move the structure very easily once it's built.
More then one house can be built and located anywhere. This one was not built under a table it was on a hill under the trees.
Every town needs a store!
Now I have had these toys since childhood and they have survived. The kids love when I pull them out because it's a new toy to them and it's fun to build. Its neat to watch them figure out where to put pieces. They haven't seen a real log cabin home in person that would be a fun family trip! After that experience they may ask for more logs to build more variations.
Were Lincoln Logs in your home? I think I even seem them in the store so that's nice that they are still selling them!
