Build Your Own Theme Park by Lizz Lunney is a wonderful makers book that had our daughter busy for multiple days as she constructed her own theme park with these fun, if not always smiling characters. Lizz Lunney really nails it with the illustrations as our daughter created mountains, castles, carousels, food stand and more with the citizens of this imaginary world that captivated her imagination.
Build Your Own Theme Park A Paper Cut-Out Book by Lizz Lunney Age Range: 8 to 12
First the setup portion. We decided that this was going to be best created on a large piece of cardboard that we had and that was a great call. This allowed us to move it around and this is not something that your child will most likely create in one sitting. Scissors were a must with glue sticks and tape rounding out her tools.
Get the fun going for makers of all ages with Build Your Own Theme Park with just scissors, glue, and your imagination! The first in a “Build Your Own” series of dynamic, interactive 3D activity books that combine engineering and creativity in an accessible way.
Kids and adults alike will love the creativity and 3D thinking that comes with this paper cut-out theme park. Based on Lizz Lunney’s characters and illustrations, build your theme park from the ticket booth to vending machines, arcade games, food stand, a carousel, a water ride with frogs, and mountain roller coaster. Invent your own ride additions for the park, make it your own, and share it online with #BuildYourOwn.
Our daughter loves the characters that Lizz has created. Not only do you have the park guest, but there are also characters from the part like a robot, duck, frog that are fun. The book takes a few days to put together and our theme park had some big lines for the food stand so it must have been lunchtime.
Build Your Own Theme Park by Lizz Lunney is well worth the price of admission and makes a fun out of school project and gift for the birthday parties your children might attend.
