6 Ways To Make A Cardboard Dollhouse

DIY Recycled Cardboard Dollhouse

Do your kids com­man­deer every box that comes into the house like my daugh­ter does? It’s both endear­ing and annoy­ing: who has room for extra boxes in var­i­ous states of trans­for­ma­tion all over the floor? Help your kids along by show­ing them these amaz­ing doll­houses made from recy­cled card­board boxes!

I may love doll­houses more than my daugh­ter does. But since we’re all stuck inside, it’s the per­fect way to com­bine two win­ter obses­sions around here: get­ting crafty and enjoy­ing the cozi­ness of our home.

In its larger scale, you can make a kid-sized house to go with it. Or, make mul­ti­ple sizes to fit every doll and action fig­ure in your house, then put them in a dollhouse!
