Haunted House





This was so much fun! It is a kit of foam pieces that Michael's is selling for kids. It is around $20 which is too much to me but with the coupon it is well worth the cost. My 7 1/2 year old son worked on this after school (in 20 minute or so sessions by choice) all week. All I did was put the walls together with him, glued them and then once it set he went to town on it. He just looked at the picture and followed it some and made some changes that he liked - like the eyes on the roof of the house and he painted on the eyebrows! It came out great! He even made the turret and roof all by himself I just gave him the hint of tying rubber bands around them until the glue dried. At the end he and I put the glitter on the shingles and put them on but really that's about all I did other than stand there and encourage him. He loves it and is so proud of it and so am I.
