The Longhouse Project
Little Girl’s Assignment:
Build a longhouse or wigwam, using as many natural resources as possible.
She was determined not to use anything other than natural resources. If it was up to her, I don’t think she would have even used the hot glue to hold it all together. My girl is quite the literalist.
But no worries, the furs are fabric. Zan suggested skinning some roadkill, but for some reason, she didn’t like that idea. Back when he and Big Girl built her longhouse four years ago, some stuffed animals were sacrificed for the project. This caused an emotional crisis of mass proportion when both girls found out where the “fur” had come from. They still get teary eyed when it’s mentioned. I made him swear to let me take care of the supplies for that portion of the project this time. 🙂
