I made a toy barn out of a cardboard box, popsicle sticks, hot glue, sandpaper and spray paint.  I was having so much fun that I made fences and a duckpond to make a full farm.  The roof lifts off and there are stalls for the animals inside.  It was a gift for the third birthday of my friends daughter.

In progress shot.... (before the roof tiles and paint)

Action shot .....

The duck pond is made of craft felt, cardboard, hot glue and stones.

It took a long time Acorn - I was probably working on it (on and off) for a couple of months.... I kept running out of hot glue and popsicle sticks.  Always buy more hot glue than you think you need - then buy TWO extra packets on top of that.  Also, if you are going to make anything with a lot of popsicle sticks, try to find two stores that sell them.  So that when you clean out the first stores' supply, you can get more from the other store, while the first one restocks.
