Toy Tree House

tree house from sticks, leaves, flowers, and yarn

The kids built this miniature tree house this week using sticks, flowers, leaves, and yarn. They had a fair bit of help from Aunt K, who they originally commissioned to help them build full-size monkey bars (using the same materials). They are still trying to convince her that their original vision is possible…

Aunts are awesome!

    Hi Maryanne — So glad I stumbled across your great blog! Kudos for all you do to help promote the children & Nature connection.
    Treehouses (real ones in trees) have such great potential for kids. Too bad there are so many forces at work against their widespread resurgence. Did you ever build one as a girl?

  3. OMG, your sister looks so much like you! How great it is that she is visiting to help you out on this last stretch.

  4. I love it – my girls made something similar that they called a grasshopper’s house. Glad you are all having so much fun with your sister.

  5. I love it!!! It must be great to have your sister there. Does she live nearby? I only have one sister and she is in upstate NY – we miss her; we only get to see her twice a year. Aunts are awesome!

    1. She lives in Florida, so it’s a real treat to have her here!!! It’s the first time she’s been here since Lily was a newborn. She’s only 17, which makes her the super-cool aunt. :)

      I do have another sister about 35 minutes away, so I’m lucky all the way around – and so are my kids! :)
