One thing I never had as a child that I wanted for my children was a tree house. I had cousins who had a huge tree house at their home. This was more like a house up in the trees, there were rooms and it was extremely long, had multiple walls and different areas such as a normal house would have. I remember running around playing in that tree house whenever my family visited there.
When our family moves to a bigger home with more space, I really hope that we can work together and build a tree house with the children, although it will not be as extravagant as my cousins nor the one in the image above. I want something simple, yet fun that will encourage the children to have pretend, outdoor adventures and hopefully get our four year old off the “I want to play the Wii” kick he’s been on.
A tree house is something you can build together with your children, it can be a family project. If I were to do this as a family project; my daughter would be the designer, my sons would be the creators of themes for the tree house, Justin would help build with the boys and I would supervise as well as provide treats and drinks while all the workers worked.
Do you have a tree house for your children? Did you build it with them or for them?
