Stand up the sides, slots facing up. Slide the front, slots facing down, onto the sides. Then slide the crosspiece onto the back. Lay the top piece onto the stand, with the notches fitted around the interlocking side pieces.

To parents: Have kids hold the pieces steady while you put the slots together—and watch out for pinched fingers!
