Building Block Christmas

This year is a building block Christmas 

Decorating the mantle with balanced block letters took a while.

The 'S' needed a bit of a different treatment. 

Making the 'Y' shape was definitely a design challenge. 

(I'm glad Christmas isn't spelled with a P)

Inspired by some of the amazing Kapka structures I saw on Youtube , I 'put up' a tall building block Christmas tree in the play room yesterday.

It took a while.

Circles of blocks built on top of one another, diminishing in size until they close over the opening to form a cone tree shape. 

It's almost five feet high and very delicate.

Has to last until the grand children arrive.

Hope the cat doesn't try to climb it before then.
