The weather this spring has been less than ideal...it has been pretty awful! My kids and I needed some inside stuff to keep us busy while the wind was blowing 100 miles an hour for about 3 weeks argh.
We recently bought a new stove and used the huge box to make a cardboard house which the kids really enjoyed. When I stumbled upon A Girl And A Glue Guns post about painting a cardboard house and making it stinkin cute...I first thought who would spend that much time on a cardboard house? Then I saw the bucket of yellow paint we never used and our little plain cardboard house already built...so I guess I am someone who would spend that much time on a cardboard house!
We added some cardboard shingles and painted them pink
The kids had fun helping me paint cereal boxes for window boxes
And we used a hot chocolate box for a mail box
We just trimmed them down to the size we wanted and painted away
More cardboard for paned windows and baby blue shutters
I think the kids favorite part was filling the window boxes up with Popsicle stick flowers.
And of course every house needs a mailbox especially a pink polka dot mailbox
