A long overdue post because as of today this house of hers had gone to playhouse heaven. RIP playhouse.
Her house collapsed and took up space in this tiny pigeon hole house. With a newbie at home, we have to keep shifting and rearranging furniture and stuff every bloody day.
Imagine a game of Tetris.
*sigh of frustration*
So here we go.
Weapon of choice:
Used pizza boxes
the glue gun that unfortunately almost electrocute me
...that leads me to using the normal glue
First we draw half a circle all over the pizza box. I guided her to draw the semi circles. After that, it bought me a bit of time tending to her brother while she's busy coloring them.
Was trying to glue-gun the semi circles onto the roof when the glue-gun made a tiny pop sound and blew up on me. Gave me a shocker there ok! My palm was slightly blackened by the tiny commotion. Thank god I told the kid to stay far away whenever I am dealing with dangerous materials/equipment.
We ended up using the white glue. Works the same.
The kid wanted to put her name down on her house. Made her spell out her name as I cut the alphabets using the left-over felts.
So there you go, we save hundreds of dollars from purchasing a real playhouse that will one day be given or thrown away. At least the pocket won't hurt much. *snicker*
Our dearly departed playhouse was thrashed and thrown about in the house well. You served the kid well. We bid thee goodbye.
