Lord of the Rings Hobbit House Toddler/Mommy Craft

We went back to the ReSource Warehouse & Gallery to do the make and take today (where you pay $5 an hour to use anything in their special room filled with a gazillion little fun odds and ends to make whatever you want). What started out with “maybe today we should make a house… or maybe a little town out of cardboard” turned into “let’s make a hobbit house!” It’s amazing what you can make with things that are just laying around, in this case an Amazon box, a large tube, some tissue paper and some paint. I love the Resource Warehouse’s weekly arty party! I can’t wait to keep coming back throughout the summer and see what else we can come up with!
