The Playhouse

I decided to make Aiden a playhouse this year for his birthday. I had seen online many tutorial on how to make a cardtable playhouse and decided to give it a try. There is a reason someone sells these on Etsy for a lot of money...they are not easy! But it is done and hopefully it will last for all of our posterity because I will never get this month back!

This picture isn't great, its from my ipod. I wanted to show it finished. It wasn't quite done at the party. The mailbox has a little pocket inside so he can get mail.

The door open at the top. It has two windows and a tree. One day I might make apples and leaves to add the to tree. But right now I'm sick of looking at the thing.

I don't have pictures of the inside, but I put pockets in it so he can store toys or books in there.

The top is a car mat. All of the playhouses I've seen are just plain on top. I thought this would be a good idea, he can stand up and play with cars or trains on it. It has our house, Jim's, school, gas station, car wash and a zoo.

So far all of the boys have played in it so I think it was money/time well spent.

Wow Chrissy! That is amazing! I would love to make one of those for Spencer, but I don't know if I have the patience and energy to do it. Yours is beautiful!
