homes

May 13, 2008

 
I forgot to post our spring fairy house here. So this is it. Keely requested water and an upstairs. I thought the river and a ladder would fit the bill.

Then after seeing this DIY foam core doll house thingy, I thought we'd give that a go.
Keely LOVES setting up houses. Usually she makes them for stuffed animals and they are built with blocks and bean bags. She also has a few real doll houses, but I thought she'd like setting up this multi-purpose house too. Just another one to add to her collection. 

And lastly, I tried my hand at making a couple paper houses. I thought it would be fun for Keely and I to make a whole mini neighborhood and do some landscaping and all, but she is a bit too young and uninterested at this point, so I'm filing that away for a later date. She did draw people and pictures on the insides of these though.
*If you do make the foam core house make note of one of the comments on that post about cutting one of the slits 4 inches long and the other 6 inches. The post says 2 inches and that does not work.

    I love this idea. We have a wooden dollhouse, but it’s hard for 3 girls to navigate the activities on both floors. I’d rather have something like this so that every room is accessible. I might try to get dh to make something like this with plywood. Until then, the foam core would do the trick.

    That is great! I love the idea of using stuff you already have. I just saw a cute idea for making a dollhouse desk out of small matchboxes so you can really pull open the drawers. Keely is lucky to be doing these creative things.

    rocks are a great structure idea on the outside houses (ours are for slugs!) …I’ve seen those modular houses and thought they were clever..thanks for the tip…and I know the feeling with those construction houses. When you get all excited about something and your kid just looks at you like…yeah I’m four…I’m going to take a nap. Next year!
