The House that Cardboard Built

Check out this fantastic cardboard house by Color Me House! We have had the best time decorating the house with E. Each day after work, we decorate a little more. It is almost complete, and will post photos soon. For now, here are a few on the first day we had it assembled. E loves the house and wants to play in it often.

This would be a fun project at a children's party.

Also, see below for an alternative use for formula dispensers.

Formula dispenser turned paint cup!

We used it both with the lid on for one color at a time, and then took the lid off and let her mix it up. Both ways, the paint was contained well.

Paint tip: Tempera Paint is great, but recently I heard a tip from our wonderful preschool minister. She suggested putting a tiny bit of dish soap in the paint and this makes it even easier to wash out of clothing. Great idea!


  1. How neat! I can't wait to see the finished product!

  2. Somehow I missed this blog post--What an awesome little play house! And the paint idea is perfect! I'm definitely going to do that when Ethan gets old enough to start painting. Thanks for sharing!
