    Under Table Cubby House

    I have finally finished the under table cubby I have been making for my grandkids. DH and I took it over to them yesterday and wow did they love it.

    The front of the cubby has peek-a-boo windows, a roll up door, flower gardens and a mail box (pocket type) that they can post letters in.

    One end has the vegie patch with pickable carrots, tomatoes and fruit. It didn't take long for little hands to pick most of the fruit.

    The other end has a pony with a wonderful piece of barn bling that I knew would appeal to Miss 3.

    The back has a mini version of their backyard pond and a portrait of their hand tame pet rainbow lorikeet.

    Wow, what a great gift. They will have hours of fun with that. That had to have been a lot of work involving many hours. What a wonderful Grandma you are.

    Ditto to what everybody else said! What a fun project. Does it cover a standard size table? It seems to be larger than a card table size.

    It is a dining table with the extension piece in, so it ended up quite long. The kids have a large play room and the table sits in the middle of it with plenty of room around it.

    This is great! Love the pickable veggies and fruit. Kudos to grandmother.

    Reminds me of one I made for my kids when they were small. I used panels and upholstery fabric to depict a jungle, barn and space. Not near as nice as yours.

    Thanks for all the lovely comments ladies.

    I hope the kidlets get years of fun out of the cubby.

    Your Cubby House is just adorable. I just made one for a friend's daycare & her children just loved it too. It was hard for me to leave it with her! But I do not have any little grandchildren any more. Wish I could post a picture.
    A lot of work but worth every minute; I enjoyed doing it.
