This simple cardboard playhouse is just oh so perfect for popping up on the kitchen table, the sitting room floor or folded up as a take-along play prop for traveling and keeping the kids engaged when you’re out for dinner. It’s three part construction makes it self-standing whether folded inward or in a zig-zag terrace.
All you need to make is corrugated cardboard, a craft knife, paint, a hole punch and some twine!
Simple cut the cardboard into basic building shapes, and punch holes on the sides, as shown, to join them into a terrace. You can have as many houses as you want, don’t just stop at three!
Invite the kids to paint and decorate their houses – the mess free option is to use coloring pencils or markers.
Wouldn’t this make for a lovely group project? every child creates their own house and they are all joined up to make a village. How cute would that be!
Create alternative designs on the back and front of the cardboard for two alternative play scenes.
Then just loop the houses together with twine and play away xx
Happy making and playing
