Cool cardboard playhouse DIY for the happy little homemaker in you life!
Make Baby Stuff offers this really cute tutorial for a cardboard playhouse. The plans offer several helpful tips for constructing, painting and decorating. Pictures compliment the simple directions to help you make the perfect little cozy cottage. When constructed the playhouse has an arched entry, windows and a skylight! I can just see my 2 year old giggling out of control while popping her head through the skylight in a fun game of peek-a-boo! And I'm sure my 8 year old who covets cardboard structures (last one he constructed was a "rocketship" filled to the top with all the "gadgets" he wanted to share with the aliens he intended to meet on his trip to Pluto) won't be able to resist squeezing himself inside to join the fun. My daughter might even be able to convince him to stay for a tea party. According to the site, "This house is much cooler looking than an expensive plastic playhouse and it was made out of mostly free stuff!"
