Or put that kid to work, after all, the kid is the one that keeps asking how Santa will get in the house right?
Now if you have lots of random stuff laying around like me, you will have some left over stone patterned wallpaper. If you don't, just get some construction paper and cut it into brick shapes and glue them on like so.
Next you have to build your fire. We used an old metal basket and filled it with partially burned wood from our outside fire pit and cut up some yellow and orange foam paper. How awesome is THIS?!
Now you must decorate your mantle and of course hang your stockings by the fire. Just not too close. No one likes their stockings on fire.
And voilà!!! Now you have a fireplace and Santa will have somewhere to enter the house each year with lots of toys for the little ones Christmas joys!
Stay tuned for our next project. We will have to make some pretend marshmallows and sticks because roasting cheesy poofs by the fire is just plain..........HILARIOUS.
Christmas Breaks are AWESOME.
