Paper House and Paper Tree

The youngest daughter’s weekend project consists of making a house and backyard with lots of trees and flowers.

I was able to get a lot of ideas in the web when I searched for patterns. In the afternoon I tried to do a house and a tree.

The daughter loved it! She can’t wait for the print outs for the detailed outline so she can make her own.

Here’s what I made: presenting my low-cost housing unit and a tree, ta-da!

Paper house and Paper tree

The youngest daughter enjoyed “decorating” the outside walls of the house when they came home from school:

Paper House

I “copied” this pattern but I used my own measurement. For the 4th wall, I had difficulty adjusting it to be able to get a square. I obviously ran out of paper which made the house pink in front and white on the sides and back.

Am excited to get more supplies at the bookstore for this project. Can’t wait for tomorrow to come 😀

I am definitely missing seeing the youngest child make wonderful drawings.

Below is a Mr. Gru drawing she did half a year ago when she was 7.9 yo, “copied” from a drawing tutorials from YouTube.

Mr, Gru

She has done several drawing which I featured, including these digital art drawings of a singer and a house, the little boy and dragon’s head.

One more thing I’m missing is her playing the recorder. She said she has forgotten some of the musical pieces she mastered when we were still homeschooling. :(
