Gracie and Sally wanted to make “a big project” over spring break. I let them scroll through my Pinterest boards and choose something we could all make together. We always need inspiration for easy crafts for kids that don’t take a million dollars (or a hundred hours) to complete. They saw some clothespin peg dolls and dollhouse ideas and fell in love with making one of our own!
The main house as made using a stitch fix box (hello readymade wallpaper), acrylic paint, green duct tape leftover from another project and some hot glue! I used a sharp box cutter to cutout windows per the girls instructions and use scraps from other boxes for the roof and interior floor. We filled up the dollhouse with things we scavenged around our real house. Corks, magazine pictures, number lines from an old kindergarten workbook, popsicle sticks, parts from a Pepa Pig playhouse toy.
The clotheslin peg dolls came in a big pack from our local craft store for just a few bucks! The girls LOVED creating these peg people. So fun!
Lilly made the tiny accessories for her three peg girls and they’re my favorite thing ever!
I’m feeling motivated to make more time for projects this summer. So much planned! I’ll keep you guys posted and share our projects- I hope they inspire you to make things with your own kiddos!
If you loved this project be sure to check out these easy crafts for kids! We all need a few more of these in the idea bank, right?!
This is so precious! I love the blue hair, the zebra at school, and is that cotton candy? I loved doing projects like this when I was a kid and can’t wait till my girl is old enough for them too.
Yes, the cotton candy! So fun.
