There are two things that kids love: A treehouse and a good ol’ cardboard box. Put those two items together and you get a super fun and eco-friendly toy– The Calafant Cardboard Treehouse from Creative Toyshop. Zoe and I had a blast learning how to make a cardboard treehouse.
Every child dreams of having a treehouse especially if you grew up watching TV shows like Punky Brewster (I was obsessed with that show). My daughter wants to build a real treehouse of her own, but we are apartment dwellers, so that won’t be happening anytime soon. If you are like us and you can’t build a treehouse in your yard, start your child off with a personal cardboard treehouse.
Zoe was thrilled to help me with the instructions as we used our problem-solving skills to assemble the cardboard pieces. It was like a fun puzzle that we couldn’t wait to paint. As soon as the cardboard treehouse was put together, Zoe instantly put her art apron on and was ready to paint. I turned on some music while Zoe painted to her heart’s content. She danced around the table and used lots of vivid colors with tiny and broad strokes.
This eco-friendly toy is fun to put together and your child gets to paint the plain white cardboard with plenty of time for imagination play once the masterpiece is complete. Zoe picked out her tiny toy figurines and race cars and let them weave in and out of the cardboard doors.
- Easy to build – no scissors or glue needed
- Sturdy, functional toy – ideal for play with 3″ dolls
- Encourages creativity and creative play
- Made from amazingly sturdy recycled cardboard
- When you’re done playing, it’s recyclable!
Cardboard crafts have endless possibilities and I am pleased with this art project for kids. My daughter really enjoyed putting it together, painting it and then getting to add her own toys to the cardboard tree for some imagination play. We thought it would be fun to share this eco-friendly art project with your family. So, are you ready to win and make a cardboard treehouse from the Creative Toyshop!?
