We Built A {Gingerbread} House!

December 8, 2012

Lowes and Home Depot offer free kids projects on certain Saturdays. I always forget about them, but made it a point to register and go today.

Reid and I didn’t sleep well and Jack was up early, so it wasn’t the best morning. Reid wasn’t feeling well and my back and head were hurting, so I didn’t want to go, but I knew I’d regret it and Jack was looking forward to “craft time.”

Even on the way there, I was in a grumpy mood. And felt like the worst mom ever.

But, once we got there, I snapped out of it and forgot all about how the morning had gone.

I have to say, though, I was nervous about building this little house by ourselves. I had go give myself a mental pep talk, saying “You’ve helped put on roofs on real houses! You can do this!”

Thankfully, the instructions were Ashley and Jack friendly.

Jack has a tendency to get overwhelmed in loud, crowded situations, but he did really great.

We had a good system with me starting each nail and him finishing them. I was pretty impressed by his hammering skills.

His favorite feature is that it opens. He immediately declared he wanted to put his tiny ornaments in it.

I don’t know where he gets this from…

We were both pretty proud of ourselves.

I’m so glad we went this morning. I only wish we would have started going to more workshops sooner, but there are plenty for next year. Also, Michaels Craft Stores offer free kids classes, too.

the end.
