Assyrian Siege Tower

We used the suggestion from Story of the World Volume 1 Activity Guide to build an Assyrian siege tower out of legos.
We spent a few minutes looking at images of siege towers on Google to get an idea of how to build one.
I put together the base to get the boys going and they had fun building up the sides of their tower.

Once we had our siege tower put together, we drug out the box of wooden blocks and put together some heavy duty town walls.

A grabbed the ladder from our Lincoln Logs so he could help the little Lego men get atop our siege tower.

Then the fun started! The boys had no trouble using the siege tower to fight their way through the walls! They took their job very seriously and not one stone was left unturned.
