Make some space

What you’ll need

Playdough or clay, toothpicks, paper clips, other small items

Charles Simonds is best known for making small buildings for tiny people that he imagined living all over the city.

  1. Think of a space that you like to spend time in or would like to visit. What is it? Where is it? What kind of buildings, streets, walls, signs, or parks might it have?
  2. Design a tiny version of this space, using materials such as playdough, clay, toothpicks, and other small items you might have at home.
  3. When you’ve made your small environment, take a photograph of it and share it with us.
