::: make it irresistible – create miniature houses
Here’s a project you might like to do in the holidays.
These miniature wooden houses are made from scraps of pine timber which we picked up from Reverse Art in Ringwood.
We painted them with craft paint, each side a different colour, and using a small brush dabbed roof tiles on the sloped top. We painted a variety of shapes for the windows and doors with the black detail being added later with permanent markers.
The children enjoy these little houses everywhere at kinder …
in all kinds of imaginative play spaces …
… where ever their imaginations take them.
We also use them to jazz up other areas around the room.
They make terrific little props!
Ask builder parents for ‘dressed pine timber’ off cuts then sand the rough edges to avoid splinters!
