A friend sent me the link to this blog- the photographs are beautiful and there are some wonderful ideas! I have a blog called {kidlist} activities for little kids for the Chicago area. There is a post about making things out of cardboard boxes... check it out! http://kidlist.blogspot.com/2011/03/get-creative-with-cardboard-boxes.html


Thank you! Looks like a lot of fun to create with the kiddos!

We made a house and it came out nicely but the roof was pretty tricky - couldn't get the flaps with the glue to stick, even with a glue gun. So we used painter's tape instead, which looked cute in a bright color. The glue gun was low temp, does it make a difference if you use high temp? (My first time using a glue gun.)

I just became a grandmother. I love this website! It is refreshing!

This makes perfect sense.

Not half bad for a DIY toy! I'm sure my daughter would love creating cardboard houses with me instead of buying plastic ones. Thank you for sharing this!

How adorable! It's a lovely project to build with your preschooler. I'm pretty sure it's going to be a lot of fun.

You have such great ideas. When I saw this, I thought maybe we could add some old wallpaper or laminate for "house paint" too. I would use a strong tape instead of the glue so my child could be more involved in the process of making this. I also would use a button or a bead for the doorknob so they could use a dull needle and "sew" the doorknob on. I really like this and I think we will put it on the list of kids crafts to do this summer. Thanks!


Oh fun fun! I just finished a lifesize cardboard cafe for my Little Missy and I think we need some little houses too! I am sure it will go much quicker than what we just finished.

If you'd like to see what I did with our cardboard stash, feel free to my blog.

Thanks for sharing. :)
