Red Ted Art is one of my favorite blogs. Maggy always shares amazing ideas for crafting with kids. It is a fabulous resource, and I am thrilled to be a guest. The project I am sharing today isn’t mine, but my 9 year old daughter’s, Charlotte.
DIY Travel Play Set
Inside the closed box you can hold your play figurines, accessories, and more. Take it along with you on long trips in the car, to play with while waiting at the doctor’s office or at a restaurant, and more. A doll-house for when you are on the go!
My daughter loves to play with Littlest Pet Shop figurines, so that is what we used here. However, any small figurines or dolls could be used.
- Plastic Box, close able (Pencil case)
- Craft Foam
- Various Craft Supplies
- Craft Glue or Hot Glue
- Double-Sided Tape (optional)
- Miniature Furniture (optional)
- Miniature Figurines
I did this by folding the foam and cutting out a small rectangle. Don’t forget to leave room for a door!
The flexibility of the foam allows you to open and close the door.
Create wood flooring by using popsicle sticks, make pictures to “hang” on the walls from magazines, cards or stickers, create your own furniture with small recyclable items, and so on.
Add miniature furniture and accessories that you might already have. Remember that part of the fun is setting up your home, so don’t glue everything into place!
