Doll House

Age: 3-5, 6-8
Location: Indoor
Set-up: Planned


  • Shoebox or small cardboard box
  • Olfa knife or Scissors
  • Extra pieces of cardboard
  • Objects or toys to play with


Cut the top part of the box. With the olfa knife or scissors, cut a few doors and windows on the side of the box. Cut one of the extra cardboard pieces the length of the width of the cardboard box so that it fits steadily without the use of tape. Cut another cardboard piece in the same way to create a different space within the box. You can cut as many pieces in this way to have your child explore and transform the spaces.


Enjoy an afternoon of pretend play and transformation!
