Last weekend they had grand visions of transforming our living room into a ski resort, with Lego Ski Guys and chair lifts and gondolas strung across the living room. When their vision included large sheets of cardboard and vast paper backgrounds,
It was a very easy project - all you need is:
Large roll of paper
We had all the supplies on hand, except for cardboard, which required a quick trip to the recycle center. We cut the cardboard into two ski runs and covered them in the paper - since ski runs are white, that was all that needed to be done. Except, of course both ski runs had to have ski jumps, which were playmobile bike ramps that the kids taped on.
Then we rolled out the paper and painted a mountain landscape for the background. We taped this to the shelving in the kid's bedroom and left a little shelf space for the catwalk! Lastly, we hung the string across the mountain peak background for the gondola and chair lifts to move along.
The kids spent hours making the gondola and chair lifts and putting together the skiers and snowboarders, which is always a good thing for a mother of four :)
