    Yes, yes, and yes the newspaper hut is a must! So much fun I think I will have to bump it up to do again :).

    I am putting the link to both the Zome and instructions for the hut here.

    I highly recommend the big bag of parts to save $$$$$.

    I also updated this post to include another *fun* way to play with multiplication and numbers, a math clock. It is like this one but made on a piece of wood with nails.
