Very cool! I love the storage underneath. It's great from top to floor! The pickable carrots are too cute. Did you make the wooden rainbow and the fire? What kind of felt did you use for the yellow brick road and what did you use to add color to it?
The cave is adorable as well!

Yep, the wood rainbow and fire are just cut from wood, I just sketched the design on wood (I think its pine, I'm not sure, I found it in the garage!), and cut it with a jigsaw, then sanded the heck out of it and painted it. 

All the felt is "eco felt" from JoAnn's, some is from little sheets and some is leftover from Halloween costume making that I bought by the yard.   For the yellow brick road, I chastised bricks all over 2 layers of felt, then cut the road shape.  I added color with fabric paint, just using my finger to color some of the bricks to make the bricks stand out better.  In real life you can see all the bricks, harder to see in the pics.

Awesome! My daughter has been having fun playing with my christmas village on a table I have set up so maybe she would enjoy something like this too. Especially love the ramp, such a great idea!

That is amazing!  You came up with such great scenes! I may have to steal the idea for the earth and moon for my nephew who is obsessed with space stuff.  Great job!

Thanks so much! The felt tip is going to help me out a lot. And I think you do qualify for a woodworker! Seriously, the rainbow and fire look like something from the store.

You're welcome - and another tip - the felt by the yard is a better quality and a little thicker, its nicer to work with (unless you can afford the wool or wool blend, which is even better).  I usually get it by the yard if they have the right colors, its cheap too!

You out-mommed yourself with this project! A lot of imagination went into this and Levi gets to put a lot of imagination into it, too!
Awesome!
