This was the first file folder Doll Dragon did with daddy after her long time away. She loved the concept of the folder and holds the little paper house close to her heart.
I found the printable for the paper house here.
You cut out the different pieces then glue or tape them together. We found that tape works best. I also found that the kids love the finished paper products but it is difficult for them to help. The cutting is precise and the folding is also. I printed out a bunch of these but haven't put them in the folder again because of the above reasons.
I wrote a post about the kaleidoscope that Jerry made with Doll Dragon earlier this week. He made one with Little Dragon later in the week. Both the kids love their kaleidoscopes (even though they don't work). It is special because they made it with Daddy.
The kids are now familiar with the crates and get very excited when they see it on the doorstep. There are also great little booklets inside that the kids can do on their own. I need to get a picture of one.
The crate pictured above was making glow worms. There was an adorable story about Kiwi being afraid of the dark and meeting some glowing friends to help him overcome his fear. We read the story first then gathered the supplies so the dragons could make their own glowing friend.
Like every craft in the crate there were simple instructions with easy to follow steps. The dragons, 3 and 5, were able to make these on their own with minimal help from the adults.
When they were finished we turned out all the lights in the house and went on an adventure with the glow worms.
Thank you Kiwi Crate :)
