Oh if this just isn't my favorite thing I've ever made, I don't know what is. I'm glad I gave myself lots of time to work on this before my little ones have their birthday at the end of November and it has been so fun to work on here and there these last few weeks. This is actually a very easy project to make and could even be your very first wood working project if you are up for it! All you need are the right tools and lots of imagination.
I am fortunate enough to have a small amount of woods in my backyard and was able to gather all of the materials for this outside. The only expense was the $30 or so that we spent on this board, typically the wider the board you get the more expensive it will be. For their birthday I will have it all set up with my DIY felted trees, little peg people and this new DIY felted playmat that I made (tutorial coming soon...) I cannot wait to see their imaginative play take off with this little treehouse and it feels like 3 is the perfect age for this type of toy to be introduced.

Tools to have on hand:
Jigsaw - this can be used to make SO many toys.
