Good Gifts: Making a Doll House
“Which of you fathers, if your son asks for a fish, will give him a snake instead? Or if he asks for an egg, will give him a scorpion? If you then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him!”
As my littlest turned four I wanted to give her a good gift. She had a collection of fairies and Dora dolls and ponies and daily played "doll house" but the dolls didn't fit in her little pink doll house, and they couldn't stand up and each day as I watched her play the desire to give her a good gift grew more within. I looked on line for hours trying to find the perfect house at the perfect price, and as much I as I wanted to give her an amazing doll house they all had 3 digit price tags attached. Lets be practical, we spend tons of money every month on our special allergy diets, and there is no way we could afford or even justify spending over 100 dollars on a doll house. So like any determined Momma, I decided we'd make it!
We took an old cube shelf from Target that usually costs about 30.00 and turned it into a fairy, pony and Dora dream land. It delighted our little girl when she unveiled it on the morning of her birthday.
