HOUSE OF CARDS

Inspired by the story The Three Little Pigs.

The Challenge

Build the fanciest house out of a
deck of cards that you can.

The HARD Challenge

Can you build a house out of cards that wishstand the big bad wolf’s huff and puff?

No stickytape, bluetac or anything else!

First, take two cards and lean them against each other as an upside down V. Try this a few times until you get the hang of it.

Next, place a few of the upside down Vs next to each other. You can do 2,3, 4 or as many as you want.

On top of two triangle, lay a card horizontally. This joins them together to create the bottom of the triangle for the layer above.

Keep going until you reach the top! The wider you make your base, the taller your tower will go!


Hint: Using older cards makes this challenge easier!
