I don't know if anyone remembers this cardboard playhouse that I made for Bijou and Zion a while back. While incredibly economical (it cost me next to nothing to make) and easy to move, it did not get used as often as I would have liked. It get HOT here in Mississippi and playing out in a cardboard house that's been sitting in the heat was no one's idea of a fun afternoon. So the playhouse got retired to the garage and there it sat for awhile. I decided that all was not lost for our little playhouse and with some tweaking, it could still be a really awesome toy. So, I scaled the size down a bit and attached some Velcro (to stand up to rough play a little better) and brought it in the house. I have this strange obsession with paint chips from the hardware store, so I literally have every singe one that Home Depot has (thanks to a very patient cousin who helped me collect all of them one afternoon). I used one stack (of many, many) paint chips to cut apart and make "bricks" for the outside of the house. I also added a little chalkboard (actually just a rectangle of chalkboard spray paint framed with wood grain contact paper) for them the draw or write little messages. Now it's cheery and colorful and when I want to free up the floor space, I can just take it apart and store it under their bed.
