We remembered this morning how long and hard Pa worked to build the little house on the prairie. He used logs he hauled up from the creek bottom and mud as a binding agent. I can only imagine how difficult it was!
Our task today was not nearly as difficult - using pretzel rods for our logs and chocolate frosting for our mud, each child made their own replica of the little house. Approaches varied, and each house is just a little different from its neighbor. All turned out pretty adorable, though.
We have two more days to read Little House. I am sure that we will not quite finish it, but children are welcome to take their copy home to finish it there.
