Not too long ago, I was sitting in my family room staring at our little box house and thinking how much I loved it…and the fun and creativity it represented. (See last week’s post on taking cardboard boxes and turning them into little houses for kids.)
And that was when it hit me! I NEEDED TO MAKE A VILLAGE!
So that is just what we did! We collected boxes (scored these gigantic ones thanks to Dan), gathered supplies and invited the kids.
We painted, we glued, we decorated. We built sky lights, made curtains and cupcake flowers. The kids had a blast! I even overheard a brother and sister talking about making their box into a restaurant. Imagination is a wonderful thing!
And of course, when it was all done, I brought out a plate a chocolate chip cookies, explaining to the kids that when someone is new to the neighborhood, it is kind to welcome your new neighbors with cookies. YUM!
