Some of you may have seen these photos on my facebook page but I like them so much I could not resist to include them in my boys journal.
Every boy loves the story of Robin Hood. We recently read it and the boys have been making forts and hideaways!
Can you see the puppy inside?
He’s still in there. He helped with the digging, trying to catch moles.
A precious little house project. The base is cardboard and they stuck bark from the Eucalyptus tree to the walls and the seeds on the roof to create a bit more texture. They collected some little stones from the driveway to make their paths and embellished the rest with shells and treasures.
A little beach house made from bits of wood and lolly sticks.
How cute is this little wheelbarrow?
I wish my home could look as magical as this.
Dining table made from wood and little sculptures to ornament it.
This little bed was made from a small cardboard box, covered with blue felt.
The boys found an old leather bag and made a sofa with the leather and brown felt. The fringe of the leather bag was used to hang between a doorway. The sofa tutorial can be found here.
Fabien’s dad gave us some cases of wine for Christmas and the boys made it into a French country farm house. They gathered moss from the garden to create pastures for their horses and cows.
There is a lot of dry grass around where we are living. Perfect for making this little straw house. Scented with rose petals. Such romantic boys!
