My kids are out of school for the summer, so I’m trying to keep the activity closet stocked with boredom busters, for when it’s either too hot or too wet to be outside. This Totem Tree by Kids on Roof, would be ideal.
What a cool project. Kids can build and un-build this tree of life over and over again. The super-sturdy cardboard pieces are printed with all sorts of interesting natural textures — like leaves and bark. And the kit also includes 2 birds, a birdhouse, and mushrooms for growing on the tree trunk. I think it’s beautiful.
See the textures up close after the jump.
If you already own other Totem products, then here’s more good news: all totem sets are compatible with each other. Which means it’s like expanding a toy you already have. Plus, it’s made from recycled and biodegradable paper.
It’s hard not to love a project that’s active, quiet, and leaves you with something beautiful when you’re done.
Are your kids old enough to enjoy this sort of project? If you made a Totem Tree with your kids, where would you display it?
