I was at a friend’s house a few weeks ago and they had there what I thought and still think is a great idea for the kids, in the play room they had a cardboard play house and they have it set up in the room with a bunch of markers and crayons, so the kids can decorate and paint the house whenever they want to.
The reason why we were visiting was because we are doing a little get together with the kids, so other friends had their kids there, about 10-12 kids ranging in age from 2 ½-9 years old. Well it is a fact that kids LOVE painting and even more if it is a wall! So this is actually one time when painting on the walls is OK.
All the kids loved the cardboard house, the younger ones played hide and seek while the older kids were painting the outside of the house, and a little while later all the kids had the crayons on hand and were adding their personal touch to the house.
Later that day I got on my computer and did a little research about the cardboard houses and the company that sells them.
This Little Piggy’s house design and produce eco-friendly playhouses and accessories to improve the kids interaction. This little piggy’s house offers 3 different cardboard houses :
Little Playhouse I, Little Playhouse II, and the Little Playhouse III. The first one is a blank house so your kids can actually decorate it themselves.
The other have really cute designs on, so it is more for the little ones to play in. My favorite, is the first one…..Need to keep her busy! And it is also the most accessible priced.
The little Piggy’s houses are designed by a group of architects and digital artists who are also mothers and fathers located in California.
The house walls are constructed with 275- pound corrugated cardboard to resist any damage from the little bug’s use. The house comes with two doors, a window, a mailbox, planter box, dormer and a chimney. There are some great features about this cardboard playhouse that are good to point out:
-Eco-friendly, once the kids outgrow them, they can be recycled.
-When closed it is very compact , perfect for those times that you are going to have people over and need the space cleared. Just take down and put under the bed or behind the couch:).
-No need of glue or tape, just fold and vent.
-Great craft project for bonding with the kids.
Keep in mind that these are cardboard houses , I would say perfect for small kids 18 months to probably 2- 2 ½ and then for older kids that have already passed the destructive “ let’s jump on it stage”.
The good thing is that if you get the house when they are younger it is really easy to storage for when they are a little older and can play with it again….Talk about recycling.
This is a ladybug tested and mom approved, after all what little one doesn’t love to play in a card box:).
