 Make an model of a famous modern house - "Fallingwater" designed by Frank Lloyd Wright, one of America's most famous architects. Also try making an architectural floor plan of a room.

First, Braintree children Nora, Myles and Ethan tell about their family visit to "Fallingwater" in  Chicago, and interesting things they found out about it!

For children age 5 up, they can create the model of LEGOs or blocks. Older youth age 7 - 11 additionally may choose to learn to draw "floor plans"  (what  a house looks like from the top) and try it out by drawing the plan of "Fallingwater", or their own room. Fun for those who like to draw, or learn or build.

This is also a Kids Book Club event. To participate, read ahead, at home "Wright 3" by Blue Balliet. Copies are available at the desk, or you can place a hold. In "Wright 3", three kids find a series of mysterious coincidences about the famous Robie House designed by Frank Lloyd Wright. They try to stop the house from being demolished. If you liked the mystery "Chasing Vermeer" by this author (Balliet), the same children (Calder, Petra, Tommy) try to puzzle out what is going in in "Wright 3". This book is written at a fifth grade level, so best for kids going into 5th and 6th grade, or as a read-aloud for grades 3 and 4. We will chat about the book while making the Frank Lloyd Wright House models.

How would you decorate it? Since it is imaginery, anything is possible!  The group will make a tree-house model from cardboard, or you can create a small model of your own. We may also try to draw an architectural floor plan, if participants want to. For children age 6-11.

This is also a Kids Book Club event. Read the funny and wacky book "The 13 Story Treehouse" ahead, and chat about it while we make the treehouses. Their 13 levels includes a swimming pool and more! Or read any of the other books in the "The 13 Story Treehouse" series by Griffiths. They will make you laugh! For kids going into third to fifth grade. We'll have copies of the book at the desk
