My kids are all about designing dream houses lately – or, I should really say, dream mansions! My siblings and I used to do this as well, although our goal was to build houses that were 100 stories high. My kids are content with sprawling mansions, but they put everything you could possibly need inside – so that you never have to leave your house (mansion). The out-of-control luxury of it all is part of the fun – nothing matches the impossible when it comes to creative fun for kids!
This is the current favorite mansion. The kids were drawing details for each individual room on separate sheets of paper, but I couldn’t find those when I was taking pictures for this post. While there are multiples of several rooms, we are all sleeping in one single bedroom – shown above next to the playroom, living room, kitchen, and indoor plant room.
The original mansion has had a couple of wings added on. I love that each child has their own closet inside the Rock Room. You will notice that the house has at least two quiet rooms, created just for one of my kids who is particularly sensitive to noise.
Wouldn’t you love a swing room? I was impressed that they thought to include a news room!
2014 After School Party HOSTS
It’s time to link up your elementary school aged activities! By doing so you are giving the linky hosts permission to feature your post and to pin it to our After School Activities board on Pinterest. Last week I loved this printable addition game from The Measured Mom, this Race Around the Clock game from Deceptively Educational, and these easy ways to add music to your homeschool (or afterschooling) from My Sweet Homeschool.
