Cardboard treehouse

Amir's on a school break right now, due to the UPSR exams, so we've been indulging in some creative projects. Today, we made a cardboard treehouse, based on this one by Spoonful.

Helipad
We made three paper characters to inhabit the treehouse. Amir named them: Tree man, Michael and Bob. The top floor is also the helipad :)
