I have been collecting information about DIY dollhouses recently as we work on our very own DIY dollhouse at my autism center in Paris. A dollhouse is a great learning tool. Use it to teach new vocabulary, build fine motor skills & more.
We are in the process of creating a sweet dollhouse out of a mini shelving unit. It has an added bonus of being inside a little cupboard that the kids can open. There’s enough room to fit inside and play or to leave the door open and play in a small group. The door is painted with chalkboard paint so the kids can write on it! More on this wonderful project coming soon… ♥
I have been inspired by many DIY dollhouse projects I have seen recently. These are some of my absolute favorites!
This is such a sweet transformation using cardboard, coloured paper and paints.
This DIY dollhouse is really simple to make and easy to move around your progress nook, thanks to the wheels.
Don’t you just love the how this homemade dollhouse from Young House Love is decorated? So cute!
I love each room has a different decoration.
Bonus… I love these DIY dollhouses projects too.
