the birthday house lives on

One cardboard box (on the large side), one knife, some crepe paper, tape, a tiny bit of creative juice, and you are ten minutes away from having yourself a sweet little house.
And that, my friends, equals many many hours of fun.

quiet times as well as rowdy...

And today, Jed has discovered he can draw on it too! Wait til tomorrow when (sun willing), i am going to suggest dragging it outside and painting it.

I have very clear memories of my mum making us kids a cardboard house like this in our garden – so i can’t claim creative rights here (and aren’t all ideas just tuned into and snatched from the creative ether we breathe and dream in anyway?) but credit where credit is due. Thanks Mum!
