Lego Car Ships
Making Lego Ships with Wheels by Eli age 12
First, get a board and put some wheels on, and then put a couple
masts on. You can add other stuff to it, but don’t make it too
heavy. For your ships’ sails you could use paper towel, paper,
or tissues. The sails can be square or triangular. Use a
floor fan to make them sail across the floor. Try racing them
to see which is fastest and have fun.
PS: They don’t work very well on carpet.
The Submarine, over 2 1/2 feet long,
complete with kitchen and other work areas. The top sections
were removable. See the propellers and the rudder on the back?
The Lego town, a two-story and a one-story house, a tower, and a
helicopter! Boaz, age 8, made his helicopter with room for a
small flashlight inside so it would have lights at night. We
couldn't get the light to show up in photos, but it was interesting.
And don't forget the Capitol building!
Here we see the president working in his office.
Below, we see the courtroom.

off and showing the front yard from the top.
Boaz designed a house with dormers for a window in the second story.
The top is removable so you can see what's inside.
