The other day, we happened upon a young Maker in the midst of creating right here at the Museum. According to dad, four (and 3/4) year-old Carmine set out to build what was originally going to be a huge castle.
As he started telling me where the blocks should go, he saw a perfect spot to put a king’s chair – a “throne”. And Carmine’s throne became reality, complete with a moat in front! Everything had to be perfectly balanced and we had to use EVERY block in the room or the project wouldn’t be complete.
Of course dad helped with some of the heavy lifting, but Carmine was the brains and Maker behind the project!
