A DIY Cardboard Playhouse for a fun and easy at home activity for kids. A great way to keep kids busy inside!
With everything going on in the word recently, we have been spending SO much time at home. I have been running out of new fun ideas to keep my kids busy and entertained! When the weather is nice out, playing outside is a great idea, but when its raining for days on end… keeping kids off iPads and other electronics can be difficult! The other day, we simply used cardboard and duck tape to make an easy DIY CardBoard Playhouse.
Let me tell you that this little house was such a great idea! Not only did they have fun helping me build it, they loved to decorate it, and have spent hours playing with it!! Sometimes it is the simple things that kids like best! We used our imagination to build the cardboard playhouse and it just came out so cute!
Of course I had to give it my own special touch… I had just as much fun building the playhouse as then did! There is no right or wrong way to make a cardboard playhouse of your own!
This is a great indoor activity for kids and the ideas are endless! You can make a rocket ship, castle, boat, store and more!
If you are looking for an outdoor playhouse make sure you check out our playhouse makeover here.
Cardboard boxes (I used 4 big size boxes purchased from Home Depot)
Now to be honest, I really didn’t document how I made this playhouse exactly but I can give you a few pointers to help you make one! You can refer to the video posted below to watch how we made our DIY cardboard playhouse.
It was a great activity that kept us busy all day long!!! Let me know if you make one and tag me over on instagram @lifebyleanna. I would love to see your different ideas!
