Hide and Seek of the Week

Your parents had them. Your grandparents had them. And there’s even a chance some of your great-grandparents had them! What are they? Lincoln Logs! These miniature notched logs were invented in 1916 by John Lloyd Wright. In addition to being a celebrated toy manufacturer, John Lloyd Wright was the son of famed American architect Frank Lloyd Wright.

Put on your looking eyes and see if you can find it during your next visit! And while you are looking high and low, don’t forget to encourage curiosity by asking open-ended questions and engaging your child in the conversation. For example: What would you build with Lincoln Logs?
