First up is a treehouse which is made entirely by my lil'st sis (around 9).
And her sig-fig outside the house. LOL. If you knew my sister you'd see how well this fits her.
And a minifig my second lil'st sister made (around 13). I believe it's supposed to be a priest of some sort. I'm just so impressed by that use of the graduate gown.
And this is a sort of simplistic take of a house that my older sister made (around 17). She's what you might call an old-school builder, she'll really just build from whatever pile is in front of her instead of going through different bins to find a certain piece.
Her Siggy by her house,, and she is the one that takes all my pictures for me. (Thank you!)
Another thing she made, just from a pile of parts that I hadn't sorted yet, and even in color scheme!
And now some some tablescraps I've made: Trying out scaled up x3 pieces.
And a Newton's Cradle! (that doesn't really work)
It sort of works to bounce to last ball back to the group but from there all the balls just swing in unison.
But at least I've got a nice technique out of it, that is a motorcycle tire holding them together. :)
And some little dart guns I played around with, pretty easy to accidently shoot but still fun!
Alright, that's all for now. Hope you liked it. :)

Do you think it would work with shorter strings and heavier balls? Maybe you could put marbles in them?
There's really not much room to add heavy stuff in the balls unless you were to maybe put liquid metal inside and wait for it to cool, but then that would ruin the whole reason to build it out of LEGOŽ pieces. I never thought about using shorter strings, but I'm not sure if that would change much.
Neat! Your sisters have some talent. I like the ladder on the tree house and the car. Also, your tablescraps are cool. The big bricks are perfect, and the Newton's Cradle is a great idea. Do you think it would work with shorter strings and heavier balls? Maybe you could put marbles in them?
Love your littlest sister's sig-fig. And finally a technique to get those pieces to stick together, I've been trying to get it for a while now. I've always suspected it had something to do with a tire, though I was just trying the wrong ones. I'll probably use that technique sometime, giving you credit, of course.
The scaled up bricks and your older sis' car are my favs. I am quite like her when it comes to building with bricks, I just use whatever's there without really thinking about it much lol. But oh, I remember those dart guns. Oh do I. Me and my brother used to know how to get those things to shoot twenty feet, (Slight modifications might have been made, LOL) and still hit each other in the head. We loved those things but your right, they are really easy to fire accidentally.
