box, glue, wall paper, a bit of old carpet, scissors, paint.
Take a shoe box and
cut out holes for the windows. Cut out three sides for a door (The fourth
side remains as the hinge). Decorate the outside of the house with paint
(Make a brick bungalow or log cabin). Glue some wallpaper to the inside
of the box to decorate the walls. If you have a bit of carpet cut it to
the right size and insert in the floor of the box. Finally stick on a
chimney and find some small people live there. 'Playmobil' figures are
the perfect size.
Tape bits of material
to inside to make curtains, clear plastic for the windows. Make cardboard
furniture. Draw in the fireplace place and picture frames. Glue twigs to
the outside to make the log cabin. Form a triangle shaped roof from a folded
bit of card glued to the lid. Glue more card to the side to make a garage
