Since our previous articles on dollhouses 2.0, we were so surprised by how in vogue these toys for girls and boys are, so we continued to collect examples to surprise you and make you feel like kids again. Today we bring you the definitive post to make a dollhouse with your own hands (DIY). The perfect activity for kids.
Today we want to encourage you to build your own dollhouse, it doesn’t matter what materials you use, nor the size or the end result, the important thing is to get your little ones involved.
To begin, nothing better than to gather inspiration from existing dollhouses, to help us decide the style, design or era we’d like.
After seeing plenty of houses, and getting inspired by the best images, it’s time to get stuck in. The first decision will be the choice of material, so we bring you examples of the best materials used to make dollhouses: cardboard and wood.
At the end of this post you’ll find all the links to the different pages so you can follow the tutorials on how to build a dollhouse with your kids step by step.
Though it’s harder to make, Wood offers a lot of stability and durability which we need for our dollhouse. That’s why it’s probable that these houses will be passed on from one generation to the next.
You will need a nice empty space for your project, as working with Wood need cutting and sanding, and this makes a lot of sawdust.
At the Kingdom we recommend you use this ductile material to build your kid’s dollhouse, if you’re not sure or if you don’t have much space.
We hope that if you got this far, it’s because you’re dying to get started on a dollhouse for your kids to play.
And who wouldn’t, after seeing so many wonderful houses! And don’t forget to share this article if you enjoyed.
