What you need:
- sheets of colored construction paper

What to do:
- Invite your child to think about your home. How many windows are there? What color is the building?

- Cut out the people and the drawing of the house.
- Glue the house onto a larger sheet of paper — preferably a different color.
- Glue family figures under the flaps of the windows and doors so they can be seen when the flaps are opened.
