Some of the pieces are just generic city skyline buildings, but I thought it would be fun to make a Stark tower like the one in The Avengers. Of course, it's nowhere near an exact replica... but I think the idea comes across. There's also a rendition of the Empire State Building and, for the birthday boy, Liam's Library and Observatory. And there's a little apartment building meant to look like a Brownstone.
If you would like to make some yourself, you will need
- Wooden block pieces, of varying shapes and sizes. (Most of the buildings were created by putting together more than one block.)
- Sandpaper (I purchased a General Use pack with sandpapers of varying grits)
- Chalkboard Spray Paint (I used Rust-Oleum Chalkboard Spray)
- Chalk and/or Chalk Marker
Once your chalkboard paint is applied and dried, draw on your blocks however you like. Chalk Markers are easier to use for more detailed pieces, but the Chalk Marker is harder to remove than regular chalk, just so you know.
