Peanut is in the age where she loves small corners, claustrophobic closets, playing tent under the blanket... you get the idea. Today I built her a new playhouse on one of the walls of the kitchen. It was an instant hit with her. When I cover the whole thing with a sheet and she's totally enclosed in it, she loved it even more.
That playhouse originated from our 'For sale' corrugated plastic sign that we stuck on the outer window for less than a week before somebody actually made an offer on the house just yesterday. It's not legally sold yet, but we took the offer and tore the sign down again. While it was sitting on the kitchen doing nothing, I came up with the idea.
The corrugated plastic board looks sturdy enough, and it came with quite strong double tape on each ends so that I can stick them to the floor to make sure it will withstand Peanut's wiggling inside (I've checked, it's not too strong that it won't come off without any mark on the floor). If she still likes it by next week, I might take it to the new house, paint windows and roof on the outside to make it like a proper play house.
Too bad I couldn't make better pictures, since our camera is broken again. Thanks to Little Miss Peanut, who reached for it from the tabletop, and sent it crashing down on the floor. I had to take these with my cellphone.
Just in case you're wondering, 'Te Koop' means 'For Sale' in Dutch.
