This week we decided to build a Lego Little House! The girls were skeptical at first, thinking it would be too hard without instructions, but I said I would help (because, come on, I want to play, too!), and it ended up coming together more easily than they expected.
After a bit of fighting over whether we would keep it assembled forever or only a few days, they've been playing with Ma, Pa, Laura and Mary for the last few hours. I looked around on pinterest for other Lego Little House sets, and Lou said, "put ours on there!" So here it is:
|The dug-out house on the banks of plum creek! |
Unfortunately, lego friends don't come with long skirts.
|Lou built the wagon. We only had two wheels, so she worked with what we had. |
The part of Pa is played by Flynn Ryder, Ma's long skirt courtesy of Cinderella.
|Mary sits nicely by the house, while Laura plays in the creek with Jack.|
J arranged the greenery on the roof and built the plum tree by the door.
L was in charge of arranging the water, bridge and path, and greenery on the ground.
|Inside the house, two beds with patchwork quilts, |
Rapunzel's stove with a tall stove pipe, and a broom in the corner.
