Homemade birthday presents

Ruth and Lucy and Ed have inspired me! It's hard to buy stuff here, so the big kids made Isaac birthday presents. And what presents!

Ed cut up empty water jugs and used the extra rope from putting up mosquito netting and made Isaac a knight costume. Isaac looks very fierce when he uses the costume!

Ruth and Lucy used two cardboard boxes (something we do have plenty of!), paint, an ice cream container, and lids and handles from empty water jugs to create this wonderful kitchen set.

Isaac had to stop opening presents long enough to bake a birthday cake in his new kitchen set.

That is a pretty amazing paint job. I love the kitchen sink especially. Strong work.
