I had high hopes for this project, but it ended up being just me working on it. Notice – not a child in sight.
We made two of these foam scenes for Halloween and they were ADORABLE so I thought it would be fun to make one for Christmas too. It’s cute, but man, it’s a lot of work. There are no real directions, just pictures of a few steps, and you have to figure out what piece is what. I thought the boys would love peeling the stickers off the backing, but that kept Bryson busy for only a few minutes before he found deconstructing my buildings to be more fun than peeling stickers 😉 I lost Matthew immediately when he got his own supplies to make a microscope or something – I can’t remember what. I thought they were binoculars, but I was quickly corrected and I can’t remember what the correction was. Bad mom. I was too busy sticking foam pieces onto foam pieces that were attached to foam pieces. 😉
I regret buying the big foam train that’s in the basement, just waiting for us to tackle it. Maybe we’ll make the gingerbread house tomorrow… much less stressful 🙂
