Family Fridays - Chicago Building Challenge

Calling all lego lovers, block builders and future architects. 

Our Family Friday challenge this week is to build a model of a favorite Chicago landmark to share with the Des Plaines community.

Building blocks, cups, boxes, legos and toothpicks are all fair game along with playing cards, magnatiles and craft sticks or really anything your imagination allows and your home has available. 

Explore the City of Chicago website to learn more about your hometown and get ideas for your own project.

See if you can stump us.

We'll share your masterpiece and clues on DPPL' s social media pages.
