When we reviewed Imagine Childhood yesterday we forgot to mention that they keep a blog where we found this idea for making mudbrick houses - perfect for young builders and mud lovers. What's the secret tool for making mudbricks? An ice cube tray!

I guess there's a bit more to mud making than we'd guessed - you can find tips in their post on what makes good mud for mudbricks and what you might want to add to it to help them keep their shape. They made these cute little houses and we're sure your kids will have their own ideas about forts, cities, encampments, etc. to make.
