Bringing The Indoors, Outdoors - What Katy Said

Bringing The Indoors, Outdoors

Both my girls love to spend every moment in the garden, as soon as the weather gets warmer they are out there from morning until bedtime. They love nothing more than bringing all of their toys outside to play with and will have many a picnic on the grass.

indoors outdoorsWe are lucky to have a reasonable sized garden and we have filled it with lovely toys for them to use, to make an extended playroom as our house is bursting at the seams! The main feature of the garden is our sunken trampoline but we have also added key pieces over the years, including a sandpit, a swing and more recently a Cape Cottage from Little Tikes.

DSC_0397Little G has always wanted a playhouse, we always struggled to leave shops which had them on display as she would refuse to leave the houses behind! When she found out she was going to get her very own cottage she actually screamed! Makes me wish I had given in sooner knowing the joy it has brought her.

DSC_0381The last week or so they have been in and out of the house, adding in their own furniture and making it feel like home. They have decided between them that they have a door each, Little L being assigned the back door and Little G the front.

If you haven’t seen it already then take a look at our weekend in the garden, you can see the girls enjoying the house!

DSC_0389They have had so much fun and it has brought them closer as sisters, they both love make believe and having their own house is the ultimate in role play accessories. One of their favourite things has been to make their own letters and post them to each other. Little G is getting really good at writing now so I am pleased it is giving her an opportunity to practice her skills.

DSC_0036It is a solid piece of kit and I know so many people who have Little Tikes playhouses that have lasted for years. I am so excited to have this in our family now and I know the girls will enjoy it for years to come.

Have you thought about getting a play house for your garden?

    This is fab. We love little trikes stuff we have had all sorts over the last few years. Love that they are playing nicely together in it. Bring on more of that!

    Aaah fabulous! The twins would absolutely love something like this! They have a tee-pee — which they love — but it’s not as robust as this. The postbox feature is excellent — my boys would LOVE that. They ‘post’ stuff into everything!! Drawers, boxes, DVD player slots…

    I love Little Tikes playhouses and this one looks amazing. I love that it has the two doors and the postbox on the front. We have a smaller one in our garden and the girls love it – their favourite game is playing peek-a-boo with each other through the shutters on the windows. Little G and Little L look like they are loving their new house and really enjoying spending time out in the garden 🙂
