I saw this post by Frugal Fun For Boys & Girls and I was so excited to try it out. In fact, I invited friends over the same day & made a quick trip to the craft store.
After letting A help pick out items to decorate the house with, we headed back home to get it ready.
It was very easy following the directions for building the house. A was excited to help me measure & draw the lines on the cardboard. Then A spent a lot of time cutting extra pieces of cardboard.
The hot glue was super easy & sturdy for the house. (Much easier than frosting!). Then I added velcro to the house & then to the different decorating items.
A and her friend had a blast decorating their houses. And they even redecorated it a few times during the making process!
