Introduction: Monument Using Dominoes As Blocks

Picture of Monument Using Dominoes As Blocks

Dominoes make delightful building blocks. My eight-year-old son wanted me to post this build he did of a domino-based structure.  And you can play dominoes with them.  Best is a large set with extra pieces for various non-standard domino games.

Is this a temple? A capitol building? A monument? We couldn't decide.

Step 1: Layer I

For strength, make sure you alternate directions of dominoes when appropriate.

And with a second layer for the wings, we're done.
