When my toddler graduated from a crib to a twin mattress, I gave my older two children the worn out crib sheets. Earlier I'd brought home big boxes for them which they used to create a home, cutting out windows and entries. Then they used duct tape to secure the sheets for curtains and doors. It was a blast; they loved it! A person could also help them paint the boxes outside.

My granddaughters love to make a play house with anything that you can put a blanket over, so I decided to sew a house that slips right over a card table. You can pick any kind of material, cut out the four sides, add different features to it, such as a door, window, mailbox, flowers, whatever. Then sew them together and to the top. They absolutely love it!
