Dollhouses

Looking for a fun project to do with your kids?
This Dollhouse from Creatology was a perfect project for rainy days.
Do you remember the Gingerbread houses Candace and I put together using these same wooden puzzle dollhouses?

We picked them up at Michael's~and if you use a coupon you can get them for less than $10.  They come in all shapes and sizes.
                                               
It took us a couple of hours to put it together, making sure to glue it together along the way. Then we did a quick coat of spray paint inside and out, adding some contrast to the roof, windows and railings.
The funnest part was heading down to Hobby Lobby and picking out our flooring and wall paper!
We used felt for the flooring and scrapbook paper for the wall paper.  It actually wasn't too bad installing it.  We hot glued on the floor and Mod Podged on the paper.
My daughter even made "artwork" for her walls from images she found on the internet.
It turned out pretty cute and is now hauled all over the house leaving a trail of dolls and toys behind it.  Not bad for less than $20 right?  Now to create the rest of the block.....
Guess what's coming in less than 2 weeks?  Teacher Appreciation Week!  My head is whirling with door decoration ideas!  What do you do at your school to show your appreciation?

Happy Monday friends!
