If you are a boy mom, chances are you know Ninjago. If you're a girl mom, it's probably Polly Pockets or My Little Pony or something. In my house, it's all Lego, all the time. And Ninjago is THE thing. Because my boys are always playing with them and watching their show on Netflix, I thought it would be fun to make a little "forest" for them. Later, we could take out the trees and turn it into an outdoor training arena too. Whatever their little hearts desire. We made this one using items found in our recycle bin and craft station.
empty tea box
foam core (optional)
acorn tops (optional)
WARNING: (Yes, this craft comes with a warning.) It is quite likely that you will enjoy the making of this craft more than your littles.
Once everything is painted (I added snow and more background trees for depth) just add your mini-figures and let their imagination soar! We may or may not be adding holiday decor to our scenery.
PS - how cute would it be to turn those acorn capped corks into red mushrooms with white polka-dots? I die. xo
