Blueprints and Architecture for Kids Inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright

This post may contain affiliate links.

Today I am sharing some blueprints and architecture teaching ideas for kids. This is inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright whose birthday is in June.

blueprints and architecture for kids

I used to teach Interior Design classes at a high school and one of my favorite parts of that class was the dream house project we did. I taught the students how to create a basic house blueprint and then we also designed it by choosing paint colors, furniture photos, and other design elements they were interested in using. I LOVE creative projects and when I was in school, projects like this were my favorite. (I bet you are not surprised by that!) 😉

Dream house architecture & blueprint project

My daughter is getting interested in design recently, so I thought it would be a blast to do this dream house project with her, too. I created a printable blueprint set to use for this project and we are having fun with it.

This printable set includes several different house blueprints and individual room templates for kids to build their own houses.

My younger son used a pre-made blueprint house template and designed his house that way. My daughter loved creating her own with the individual rooms.
