a diaper box dollhouse

Edda and I had fun making a dollhouse out of an empty diaper box yesterday. She always takes various boxes and containers and pretends they are dollhouses, so I thought it would be fun to actually make one. We weren’t very careful with the detail, obviously. One can’t be, you know, with an incredibly excited two year old urging you to HURRY.


Other than the box itself, I just used construction paper, tape and a sharpie marker. Oh, and an x-acto knife. (The knife was for mamas only, of course.) Edda actually did help quite a bit. She is surprisingly awesome at taping things.


The ladder and the bed were extremely important to Edda. The peaked roof was also a must. A house just isn’t a house without one.


She also requested that I put pictures of a baby and a dog on the wall.


Oh, and the three wise men seem to like their roof top lounge very much.
