Build A Dream Playhouses Giveaway

Rule of childhood, no matter what it is inside a cardboard box, the box is the best. Well that rang true until Build a Dream Playhouse wowed children with cardboard snack shack, imagine wagon, pop n' play castles.

My oldest son jumping around saying "put it together daddy." I want to sell lemonade like Curious George. I asked how much he would be charging. He held up four fingers and I don't think family gets discounts. Boy are we in trouble. Baby brother is actually and literally into everything. Cabinet can hold one child:)

The Snack Shack was pretty easy to assemble with paper instruction. I actually preferred the video assembly on the Build A Dream Playhouses website. Very smart to add it to their site:) We only had one problem with the little menu board, it didn't fit well, so we adjusted it. It is a accessory and does not affect the structure either way.

The Build A Dream Snack Shack has been used here for two week. My children have had so much fun with it. I helped color until my fingers are numb and think we should have painted it. My boys really didn't mind the color but, did enjoy us working on it together. We did get a little creative and hot glue clothespins to the top to hang chips and snacks.

This weekend my son set up shop outside selling lemonade and chips at his party. He got all the adults to buy from him. Then all the kids played store, they had should a great time. The snack shack was a big hit at the party, the children loved it.
Thanks to Build A Dream Playhouses one winner will win their choice.
