Cardboard Playhouse for Kids to Color

Color Your Own Playhouse


A New Twist on the Cardboard Playhouse for Kids

Back in the days when I was a kid, a cardboard playhouse was whatever big box your parents had discarded from a large purchase. It could be a box from a big piece of furniture or from some large lawn decoration. It really didn't matter what the box was originally used for because any big box could be turned into a castle, a spaceship or a deep, dark cave with just a little imagination. Well, someone has improved on the idea of creating a playhouse from an empty, used box with the invention of a folding cardboard playhouse for kids to color.

Folding Cardboard Playhouse for Kids to Color

The good thing about using an empty, used box for creating a playhouse is that it's cheap entertainment. Kids love 'em! The downside is that you've got a big box in the middle of the house, so the time for fun is limited. But plastic and wooden playhouses are expensive. What I love about these new cardboard playhouses for kids is that they're inexpensive and they fold up, so they can be used again and again, and they don't take up a lot of room. Plus, they encourage kids to use their and creativity imagination because they come with jumbo washable marking pens. And because they're made of one piece of cardboard, the kids just need to unfold the box when they're ready to play, so it doesn't require a lot of time from mom or dad trying to figure out how to put the pieces together. Whoever invented the cardboard playhouse for kids to color is a sheer genius... or a parent.

      When I was a kid my mother would save old washing machine boxes and we would decorate them and cut out windows and a door. The coloring aspect of the one you are featuring would be way cool!

      My kid has passed the age of coloring but, this sure would have been a great idea to keep him occupied and be able to go in and out of this playhouse.

      Useful idea and voted up
