I’ve got a case of mom drool.
These indoor play homes are just adorable! Many of them are ones that you can make yourself (or copy the concept of the for-purchase play house kit).
I think I want to hide with a book in one of these nooks!
If you have a nifty play house in your home, I would love to see photos of it. Please share photos with our readers on our facebook wall. You will make my day!
Cardboard Play Places
Make a walk-in cardboard box house. Our local hardware store lets us take their big appliance boxes if they haven’t broken them down yet – makes my kids day!!
You can make a wigwam out of newspaper. This tutorial is super easy to follow after you cover it your kids will have a super fun home to hide in!
And if you have way, way too many boxes, you can create a maze. This one was uploaded from someone in a park in Japan.
Your kids can learn about geometry and how angles connect and interact with this fun dome shaped cardboard house.
Indoor Play House Kits:
Isn’t this little book nook adorable? It is the shape of a house, but has an open concept so you can see what your kids are doing.
Out of all the houses, I think this Boxy Play House is the one I would love to make. It looks like it could work with any gender and age!
You can create a mini-house for your dolls using a book case. These “building” doors transform the shelves into homes.
Do you have an empty corner? This play house hutch would be a great addition to a play room.
Fabric Hiding Spots
This homemade teepee takes five minuets to put-up and is easy to hide away when your child is finished playing. Great indoors or out!
If your kids have an elevated bed, consider adding a long “skirt” around the bed frame to become your kids’ play house.
This is super simple! It is a sheet-house handing from tension rods. You can transform a hallway into a fun play place.
Transform a tablecloth into a hiding house. My kids love hiding under a sheet under the table, this is even better!
