All that cardboard from the end of the last post was used today and yesterday to construct a whopping mess in the yard. A gorgeous mess mind you! I was sad to have to bring a lot of it in tonight (we are supposed to get rain).
Bedsheets, pvc plumbing pipes, clothes pegs, gaffer tape, electrical tape, string, rope, an old hula hoop and a golfing umbrella, other misc, lots of cardboard and lots of paint!
We had help from three other familys over the course of the two days to play, build and decorate, and some very sunny weather, so it was nice and relaxed.
They made artwork with my lazy suzan to put up as kind of prayer flags, and when it got dark tonight, we let them stay up late to play with toches in the cardboard city with the christmas lights all around. Paul read them their bedtime story in there too.
They really wanted to camp out, so I think we need to find a proper tent asap!
