What you need:
A cardboard box
Safety scissors
Patterned paper
The Game:
  • Cut the cardboard into a house shape (triangle on top of a square). From the topmost point of the ‘roof’, cut halfway down into the cardboard.
  • Using this as a template, cut another piece of cardboard into the same shape. This time cut halfway up along the centre of the house shape from the bottom.
  • You should now be able to slot the two pieces together into the shape of a cross, giving you four rooms in your dollhouse.
  • Take the pieces apart and using the patterned paper and paste, wallpaper the walls. Decorate the walls in any other way you want.
  • Reassemble the dollhouse and fill your rooms with dolls and furniture.
Furniture suggestions:
  • Toilet rolls make good dining tables - cut them in half and add a circle of cardboard on top.
  • Matchboxes can be used as wardrobes, drawers and beds.
  • Egg carton cups can be used for seats or a couch
  • Mini cupcake cases can be used as lampshades. Place on top of a lollipop stick and secure with Blu Tack.
