Indoor Cubby House Fun

Well we are in the throws of packing up our life here on the Central Coast. One moment I am serenely calm about the whole process feeling on top of everything...the next I am in a packing tape flap wondering how it's all going to get done. Of course it will, I have no doubt even if it means shovelling things into unlabelled boxes (this prospect sends shivers down my super organised back...even if I have to work throughout the night all through the week I'll get it done methodically!)

So whilst we were on the cooling off period I got thinking about the winter projects that I had set myself at the beginning of the year and that would now have to wait till next year. However one project sprang to mind - one that I could complete in only a few evenings and above all one that would occupy Malia and Lani during our packing.

I wrote a post about it early on in my blogging days a couple of months back and it always stuck with me as a really cute idea. We had a family lunch at the weekend to celebrate both the girls July birthdays (Lani's was today- happy birthday my sweet angel) so I set it all up for the two blondes to wake up to on Sunday morning and for us to eat our lunch on with our guests. A homemade birthday present for the two twinkles.

 They loved it and took great joy in peeking through the little mesh windows.

I would have liked to have spent more time on it and not run out of the white material (!) but all in all I'm happy with it. A two year old and three year old aren't going to pick up on the wonky seams and sides that don't quite reach the ground.

Enjoy the rest of your week and I'll be back when I need to come up for air amidst cardboard boxes and newspaper.

This is really, nice and portable cubby house. Children enjoy spending their time in playing, in cubby house. Cubby houses provide tons of fun for children, so if your kids are begging you, for their very own cubby house, the planning stage is vital to ensure that you end up, with the perfect cubby house, for your kids.
