Cardtable Playhouse

After making a playhouse for my sister-in-law, my mom and I started making three more, for me and my two sisters families. Today we finished the one for my kids. We changed it up a bit to personalize it some. Here is what we did! (Click the pictures to enlarge them.)





You might have noticed hands sticking out of the mailbox in that first photo. We thought it'd be fun for them to be able to put in real mail. The flag is also on Velcro so they can stand it up or lay it down. The windows have ribbon down both sides of them so they can roll them up and tie them in place.

My 4 year old has affectionately been calling this her puppet show house because when they use the one at my moms house they do a puppet show out the windows. They're so thrilled to finally have their own card table playhouse!

Wow! That is so cool! How does it stand up? You should do a tutorial or something to teach others how to do it.........or sell them!

I had one of these when I was a kid, and loved it. I've been thinking about making one for my kidlets. You may have just giving me the motivation to get going on it. My kids will thank you!

Wow that turned out great! I probably should pay you for all the work you're doing on mine! We'll have to think of a good payback. Girls night dinner or something.
