Printable Building Challenge Cards

By Shonagh Ruddick @three_busy_boys

Children love to be challenged. Unlike adults, all they need to get started is just an IMPULSE. Children do not have the emotional baggage we do, they are not put off by failures. They see the world differently – through the eye of exploration.

These printable building challenge cards are here to kickstart your child’s imagination and fuel their explorative minds.

By referring to the illustrations on the cards your child can develop an understanding of how the Flockmen can combine, test their stability in various combinations and most importantly, have lots of fun!
