Use Recycled Items For Homemade Dollhouse

My daughter, Eryn, created her own recycled doll house out of recycled items from around our home. Large cardboard box for the house, cereal boxes as dividers for the rooms, lids, wrapping paper for wallpaper, bows, glitter glue and paint, plastic applesauce containers for a table, medicine box for a bed and cotton balls for pillows and many other cool ideas. Recycling is contagious!

I love it, I love it, I love it! I used to do this with my kids when they were young. They grew up to be very creative and innovative adults. Kudos to you!

How adorable! My sisters and I did the same thing when we were children back in the 60's! We used discarded checkerboards for the floor of a room; tape dispensers lying on their side as record players..along with gum machine prize "records" to play on the record players, individual cereal box "beds", etc. What fun we had and what creativity was fostered along the way! I'm so glad to see children still doing this!

So creative. Your little girl will probably never say, "I'm bored." The photo stimulated many fond memories of doll houses constructed out of boxes. Wash cloths made great bedspreads on beds made of stacked books.

I think those little plastic things they put in pizza boxes sometimes would make a great table! Very cute house!

Wow! That sure beats buying from the store! I wanted to make something for my 3 years old and my 9 years old. Now I got almost everything that I see in the picture, I'm ready to make it really pretty for them for Christmas! Go Frugal!

I lived in Indiana and went to a one room school house for 3 years. Our teacher had 6 grades to teach and it was during the late 40's and times were hard. She made us a doll house out of cardboard and we loved it. This reminded me of her. Thanks for the memories. Connie
