DIY Cardboard Playhouses

DIY PlayhousesOver the last few months I've found myself pinning various styles of cardboard houses on Pinterest. I've been wanting to make one, so when my daughter's 2nd birthday party was coming up, I knew this was the perfect opportunity. Baby/toddler birthday parties always feel a little tricky for me. They can't really play organized games yet, and January is too bitter cold in our area to play outside. These houses were the perfect "what to do with the babies" solution. DIY Cardboard House Steps1. Supplies: large cardboard boxes, box knife, wallpaper or wrapping paper, paint, masking tape and/or packing tape, hot glue, double sided tape  2. Tape your box together and draw out where you'd like the windows and door to be.  Lay it down and cut out the shapes with your box knife. 3. Paint any doors and trim. Use your double sided tape or glue to adhere the wallpaper/wrapping paper to the box. 4. Use hot glue to glue shingles onto the roof and any other ornamentation you'd like on the outside of your house.  DIY Cardboard Playhouses Darling PlayhousesDIY Kid's Playhouses The cutest cardboard playhousesThese houses went over really well with the kiddos and (mostly) contained them to a single room. The part I love about a project like this is that it can be used for a party, but it is just as much fun every day!  xo. Katie
