Indoor Playhouse for Children

Indoor Playhouse for Children

We took some moving boxes that were pretty big and cut them in half on the height and then taped them together so that it made one big box. We cut doors and windows in it, so it has all kinds of hinged (folded) windows and doors that flip open and close.  My son has a great time playing in it. 

We've decorated it as well. We had some house paint which we used to paint the playhouse, and we also used some old wallpaper. We used magazines and clip art, things my son had drawn, just a little bit of everything. We also put little boxes on the outside for flower boxes and it just keeps getting more elaborate over time. My husband and I did it in one evening for about 4 or 5 hours and it was a nice activity.  Whenever kids come over to play, that's the first toy they go to.
