Thus, I feel that I can safely assume that not only will Cueball and Megan build skyscrapers and such, but will also gain knowledge of the world around them as time goes on. At the beginning, they were clumsy (falling into the sandcastles), barbaric (deriving joy from destroying the structures), but also curious (Cueball tasting the seawater). We could see that they were progressing, though, when they began building more intricate structures such as the small trebuchet and the scaffolding. At this point, they were shown to have little knowledge of the world around them ("I don't know how anything works"), but resourceful (using the bucket and rope to haul sand up to the scaffolding), even if they were still clumsy (Megan falling into the sandcastle). However, once the seawall was breached, Cueball and Megan didn't waste much time. They built more intricate structures on the scaffolding (thin towers and a domed building), indicating that they have moved on from the larger rough castles below.
I wouldn't be surprised if you were right, but people have made predictions before.
