Another Cardboard Creation: Cardboard Little Bears’ Home

As a way to beat the winter blues indoors, and up-cycle at least one diaper box into something fun, I created a little house for my daughter’s stuffed animals.  She is obsessed with animals, mostly from watching Dora and Diego shows, so this box became a perfect little home.

Instructions

1. Use a utility knife or box cutter to cut a door and a few windows.

2. Tape the roof together using additional cardboard pieces (if necessary). Clear packing tape or duct tape seem to work well.

3. To cover the house, cut apart a large brown paper bag and fit to size.  I used the bottom of the bag to create the roof’s shingles.

4. Use markers or crayons to decorate.

This was a really easy project that probably took less than 45 minutes to do.  Have fun!
