Building a House

A friend of ours bought some patio furniture recently, and we were the lucky recipients of the boxes (!!!)
 Boxes and cake icing have this in common: they don't respond to my gentle proddings for beauty. But I thought, hey, the only way to succeed is to try. So we did. 

The kids did a great job helping decorate their new play house, and since they spent a good part of the day inside (all 3 of them!) after we finished, I think they liked it!
Last addition: sky light/head hatch
Notice the hand print roof--that was all their doing, and I think it's really cool.
Oh, and it does have a real window; it just happened to be on the side that never got in the photographs! 


  1. This is SO awesome! And the best part is that they had so much fun in there! :) Good, good soul-memories. :)

  2. Super cute! Looks like so much fun! I would love for you to share this (and any other creations) at Pin It and Win It Wednesday @ www.cheapcraftymama.com!

  3. It looks amazing! They did a great job. Hey, you should link this up over at Money Saving Mom this week. She is doing a linky where you link up your summer fun activities.

  4. That is so cool!

    Have a great WW!

  5. Wow! What an awesome house! Your kids are creative! Thanks so much for sharing at Mom On Timeout!
