The upcycled cardboard dollhouse, fit for polly pocket sized princesses.
The last two mornings the girlie and I have been working on a craft project. I see a sturdy, unused, cardboard box and all I see are possibilities. 🙂 So, this time, we made a three level dollhouse for all of her little princesses and polly pocket dolls.
The first day I found a box with a flap I could cut off to create the second floor. Folded the ends under and trimmed a bit off, while the girlie painted wall paper and designed flooring. We also washed out some juice boxes and set them out to dry.
Today we glued in all the flooring and wallpaper. Wrapped up the beds, and cut out headboards and foot-boards…. glued them all together and glued the beds into place. We made a table from a fruit cup container and a round piece of paper. The girlie cut out plates and glued paper food onto each plate, which were glued onto the table (which was also glued into place). A couple finishing touches – like the construction paper pool filled with tissue paper water. And it was complete.
All in all, a pretty easy little project that I know Lily-Ann will enjoy playing with for quite a while. Who knows how long it will last… but hey! It was made entirely from repurposed trash and paper, so however long it lasts is good by me. 🙂
Here are some pictures of her new dollhouse:
