Supplies Needed:

Instructions

1. Head to your local hardware store and ask them to cut a sheet of plywood into the square 4x4 ft. for you. While you're there, pick up necessary paint and paint brush.

2. Paint the plywood. We used two coats, but pending on your paint color one may be just fine.

3. Once the paint has dried, use a ruler and mark with a pencil the corners of your first peel-and-stick baseplate. We made a four inch border around the baseplates on our 4x4 ft. board.

4. Lay out all of your baseplates and join them with building bricks. This step is important to ensure that the building grids line up correctly when you go to adhere the baseplates.

5. Remove the lining off the first baseplates and place it. Then, keep adding baseplates making sure that the building bricks line up and connect so that the baseplates are lined up perfectly.

6. We recommend you let it sit overnight or for a few hours to ensure the baseplates are fully secured. Then, play away!
