Several years ago my elementary level students made a mock 3-D
a Greek temple that we transformed into a piggy bank vault. All we needed
was construction paper, 8 toilet paper tubes (white preferred) for the
columns and some sturdy cardboard for the detachable roof. A slot was cut
in the roof to deposit money or other small treasures. The children studied
Greek architecture and culture and named their banks after mythological
characters ie. Bank of Apollo or Penelope's Credit Union. We also noted
samples of "Classical" architecture in the community. Let me know if you
want more details.
