The current toy industry really impresses with the variety of its products. After all, modern children have access to what their parents had never dreamed of in their childhood.
Plush animals, dolls of various sizes,houses, furniture and clothes for them, radio-controlled cars and even helicopters. Not surprisingly, parents often do not mind trying out all these novelties with their children. But there was a time when all this had to be done by our own hands, and therefore each such thing was unique and became a subject of boasting and pride in front of friends. So let's embody these wonderful moments again and remember how to make doll houses for your beloved daughters. In addition, the process itself will greatly please you and your children, and will also significantly strengthen relations with them.
The cheapest option, perhaps, will be a puppethouse of cardboard. To do this is quite simple: to do this, you need to cut an old box from under the TV or a washing machine (they are the most suitable for size), taking the first half as a base, and from the second making partitions for floors, stairs and, if it remains, small furniture. Remains only decorate it with colored paper, self-adhesive wallpaper or paints and equip the premises. However, this house will not last long, even if it is handled with care.

And he will independently acquire the material andmakes of plywood or chipboard a basis for our creativity, not forgetting about the slits for doors and windows.

But how to make doll houses cute and interesting, only your daughter knows best. With her, we move on to the next stage of manufacturing.
Interior and furnishing
We find trimming old wallpaper or buypaper for scrap-booking in specialized departments, cut out pieces of it commensurate with each section of the room and glue on wood glue. In some departments, like a bedroom or a living room, carpeting or woolen cloth can be attached to the floor. Also on the walls can be pasted and "paintings", making them from magazine applications or small parts of charms and souvenirs. By the way, in the business how to make doll houses even more cozy, miniature figurines and small artificial flowers will help, which can also be used for interior arrangement. Now it remains only to choose furniture. You can buy it at a toy store, and then decorate with your daughter with colored nail polishes.
