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!
