As you might have noticed, I haven’t posted a picture of a wooden train track for some time now.
The kids have basically outgrown that stuff (which does not rule out the occasional relapse), so we stopped building elaborate tracks.
But: we now got a decent number of Kapla blocks. At first sight, these are very trivial wooden cuboids. They open up suprisingly interesting possibilities of constructions. Just do a Google search for “kapla images”.
I’ve been building decent Kapla stuff with nephews over the last years, now I can do the same at home. I will post images of interesting results here.
I had no part in building this one: all credits go to Clemens.
This time, I only provided the initial crossing and the switches branching out, the rest was done by Clemens.
Clemens is a bit sick today, so I’m staying home with him and we built this set of tracks together:
