A New Place to Play


Thanks to my friend at Polka Dot Daze my kids have a new place to play!  After she put up this picture I was inspired to make one of my own!

I actually finished it about 2 weeks ago.  I really should have ironed it for you so please excuse all the wrinkles...
The first morning the whole family was in there.  The kids play in it eveyday (usually Dad does too).  They love to have picnics in there!
One of my favorite things about it is listening to their conversations.  They say the funniest things!

And in the spirit of Christmas:
Childhood...will never be the same.

How cute is that? I love it. My mom could probably make one for my kids...but I sure couldn't. Great job. Cute pictures of your cuties...peeking out.

Oh my gosh this is the neatest thing, I wish I would've thought to make a fort for the kids, this truly is neat.

Great Job!

Blessings

Too cute!!!

This project reminds me of the show "The Middle" on ABC where the youngest boy of the family has to have his room under the dining room table. Too funny! :o)

Great concept! The kids have their own territory! You've done a superb job for your two adorable kids.

Wonderful!! Such a great play space. I think this gramma needs to fashion one of those for her grandbabies! Love it!

The Christmas lights are an excellent touch and those sweet little faces are adorable.

It's good Zade doesn't know about the play house- she already asks to come over to your house every day as it is!

Lynn said...

What a cute idea! My girls would looove a playhouse like this - maybe Santa will have to start sewing...

Tricia said...

Very cute! Now, I know that if I did that, some of my kids would have pulled on the edges of it to shift things around and that vase on top of the table would be history... ;)

The Feathered Nest said...

This is the best idea and yours turned out WONDERFUL!!! I know the kids just love it ~ you're a sweet mama to make this fun play house!! xxoo, Dawn

That is truly inspired.

How lovely. Reminds me of my own childhood. I know my boys would have loved this when they were young.

They call me "Deb" said...

I used to do this with my sister when I was young - but ours were simple blankets and quilts held together with clothespins and draped over the table.
How very special your children must feel to have this 'little house' all their own!

koralee said...

Oh my goodness...this is so clever...I want my kids to be young again. Happy December.

So stinkin fun! I was never that fun when my kiddos were tiny... and now they are big and I'm still not fun like that. Ha! Well... most of the time anyway.

Teeny Tiny cabin said...

Wow! Great idea for the kids! I wish there would have been something like this when my grands were still little enough to enjoy it. Now I'm am going into a different phrase with them--have to be creative with them too!
Love to hear how you take time to enjoy your little ones!
Blessings to You, Libby!
