Bastille Day Part II: aka Mom Camp Day 20

The celebration of Bastille Day continued with a day dedicated to France’s iconic Effiel Tower.

As part of this project we crated our own towers. We started with two dimensional towers made of straws and pasted to card stock.

The Princess added a cute little sun.

Cinco’s Tower

I really liked the less technical and more artistic version of the tower created by Cinco.

Then we decide to try a few 3D versions of straw towers.

Again we consulted YouTube and watched a few quick videos on the Effiel Tower. We learned a that the tower was built to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the French Revolution.

Then it was time for a trip to the Las Vegas Effiel Tower at the Paris Hotel. After a trip to the top and a chance to see the Bellaggio water show with a bird’s eye view, we stopped for a little cream treat!
