::: make it irresistible – build a tree house
This little tree house was one of those projects that just kind of happen! Catherine from Gingham Cherry noticed it in a recent post and was interested to know what it was so we thought we’d share it with everybody.
It came about after Donna found some interestingly shaped logs in a wood pile, and to her they simply screamed … tree house!
With a saw she found in the shed, Donna took the logs and jammed them into a vice, sawed off the ends to make them even, cut another log into slabs for the top levels, sliced up a thickish branch to make the steps and then attached it all together … with the hot glue gun of course!
The children love the tree house and play with it all the time. It is constantly used in all sorts of imaginative play settings along with …
pebbles, sand, tanbark …
mud and water …
and has survived two pre-kinder and two kinder groups for over two year now!…We love our trusty glue gun!
No pattern, no rules, no cost, just wood, a saw and a hot glue gun.
We like to be creative and make our own props when ever we can like these little felt owls perched in the tree house, just making things up as we go along!
