So here's their playhouse. You can find all the instructions and some templates on Jill's blog (go here). The flowers can be picked from the planter, and the mailbox does close.
Brychan is in love with that little owl. And to the left is going to be a garden once I finish all the produce for it. I think I'm going to hang a "clothesline" across the top there too.
The doggie door (which our dog actually uses!). It has a magnetic bone that the boys can put in the dog dish.
The back window
And some of the produce. The apples and oranges will hang from the trees (and I think since we're all citrus in Phoenix, I'll eventually add lemons to the mix), and the garden will have carrots, lettuce, pumpkins and maybe some corn on the cob. Or peas and tomatoes? I haven't decided yet.
It's definitely not perfect, but I figure it really doesn't have to be. And the boys love it, which is all that matters! Hopefully it will last for years to come!
