Build a Paper Medieval City in Your Living Room

I am in love with paper dolls and paper cities! I think it's an easy, cheap, and fun activity that everyone can participate in. I've had many successful paper parties with both nieces and nephews! Since it has been so cloudy over here in the Pacific Northwest, I think these paper medieval cities would be so much fun to build inside my living room. What do you think?

I would love to pretend to make old garments with this weaving workshop paper city set. This is a vital part of making the whole medieval town come alive. We could even pretend that we are weaving robes for royalty!

The medieval city burgher house paper set comes with bards, minstrels, and waitresses. After a hard day's work, get dinner at the burgher house.

Wouldn't it be fun to bake cookies and play with this Bakery medieval paper city set? It would definitely give the essence that the set is alive! I'm sure my nieces and nephews would definitely love that. Any excuse to make cookies is a good one.

The best part about this merchant house paper city set is that it will teach (hopefully) the nieces and nephews to share. They can trade pretend or real goods. It's a good way to educate them to barter. Hopefully there won't be any arguments.

These are a super fun and great way to get those imaginations working. Take a look at these paper medieval buildings on Amazon. Comment down below and tell me which you think would get used the most. I feel like I need to have all four to create a whole kingdom!

Star Wars Mini Fridges for Geeky Nieces' and Nephews' Dorm Rooms

Do you have a few nieces and nephews who are going off to college pretty soon? One of my favorite items in college was my mini fridge. Being a total geek myself I can totally relate to needing something like these Star Wars mini refrigerators. Honestly, you can never have too many of these in college. Especially if your nieces and nephews are geeks (like me!) They will need to have a surplus of cold drinks and snacks for all their hang out sessions.

These Star Wars mini fridges are very cool - come take a look.

The BB-8 Star Wars mini fridge holds 4.8 liters. I think all the robots are hilarious and awesome in all of the Star Wars movies. Probably the best thing about BB-8 is he's orange... my personal favorite color.

Now this is the robot that I have loved for quite some time. It would be an honor to have this R2-D2 4 liter thermo-electric cooler in a dorm. I know some of my nieces and nephews have been following the Star Wars franchise since they were little. I'm sure they would love to have this guy in their future dorm room.

I need this Han Solo 12L 3D Mini Fridge in my house - it's hilarious. If your niece or nephew is used to hosting game nights or parties, this would be a great option for college. It stores quite a bit for a mini fridge. There are going to be a lot of opportunities to use this. Hopefully they decide to have a Star Wars movie watching marathon.

The Emperor may disagree, but this is definitely the king of all mini fridges. Unfortunately the Star Wars Darth Vader mini fridge is quite small. It's honestly a better option for personal use. Especially if any of your nieces or nephews enjoy sitting at their computer for long periods at a time - not like I should encourage that behavior...

Aren't these great for college? I would have love to own any of these Star Wars mini refrigerators for my home office. When I was in college, mine was just a fun color, but these are ten times better. I always like to encourage the kids to flaunt how nerdy they are anyway! Do you have any kids that would totally dig taking this to college?
