There's No Place Like Home



My little builder's are quite creative. They came up with the idea to build their own "log cabin" from the land. It seems toe stubbing and poison ivy are of no concern when creativity flows, as flip flops are not the ideal building gear. Check out their organic "Go-Green" indoor/outdoor carpet. It even acts as a storage facility for an afternoon snack of worms and grubs. yummy!

wow, good for them! I love it when my kids get into projects. If your children want to go fishing to catch their dinner, they can just find some worms on their floor- very handy.

That is great! I would stick to the outdoor version of that carpet!

Looks like they had a lot of fun!

I love that. Reminds me of my childhood...you know, lacking video games, ipods, tv all of the time...using your imagination and playing outdoors.

Wonderful imaginations! I remember doing things like that as a kid! Using branches, or hay bales!

This seems like such a fun project! I only wish we had that kid of room in our backyard, ours is filled with storage, a compost and a swingset for the kids.
