K’nex Bridges

It’s not made from Lego bricks, but it is building and constructing nonetheless. This particular type of building is a reflection on his continual interest in bridges. One evening while my youngest had me all to himself, he brought out the K’nex box and suggested we have a bridge building contest. He was especially proud of his homemade double bascule bridge.

He stabilized the bridge and now can easily lift up the roadway.
