My daughter's "starter home"
So yesterday i made my little one this cute little doll house. It is a "CD holder"that is shaped like a house which I purchased at a big box craft store. This little treasure was about $5.00 and in the unfinished wood section. I painted it out and decorated with scrapbook paper and sweet little embellishments I had on hand. I finished it off with a couple coats of satin finish Mod Podge.
Here's a shot of my daughter playing with her new starter home...
It was such an easy little project and you could decorate it in so many ways. I am thinking of making a few more and creating a little village for her. I am thinking a school house, a fire house, a grocery store, and maybe a couple more houses for her little neighborhood!
These would be great partnered with a hand painted play mat or these awesome play tables like these I found on marthastewart.com
You can paint the layout for your little village with roads, yards, ponds, driveways, parking lots... whatever your imagination can come up with!
