Most every parent knows how challenging rainy days can be when the kids are bored, cranky, and suddenly tired of all their toys. One great way to break the boredom of rainy days is by getting creative and getting your kids in on that creativity. Giving them a pathway for their imagination can be the best way to foster critical thinkers and to promote their own creativity. Imagine your children’s excitement when you present them with a homemade cardboard playhouse, a toy that can be the basis for many adventures of their imagination.

If you have a few cardboard boxes around the house that you don’t plan on using, taking them apart, and taping them together to make the walls of a castle or little cabin in the woods can be a great way to soothe bored kids. This can also be a great way to have fun and spend time with your kids. When you consider that the cost of some toys these days is amazingly expensive, it can make it hard on many parents who are struggling to live on a tight budget. When you are able to make an extraordinary toy and a big one at that, you can give your kids more without spending a single dime.

We’ve tracked down a fantastic tutorial that will walk you through how to create a cardboard airstream camper that will spark your kid’s imagination and creativity. It can also spark your imagination with ways to adapt the airstream design into environments that can be personalized to match your kid’s favorite pastimes and interests. Think about the many adventures your kids can have with a cardboard camper or other type of cardboard playhouse. For example, the little boy that loves race cars may have a blast in a cardboard pit stop for his toy battery operated car. Imagine a space where a child who loves spending time with dolls and stuffed toys can now host tea parties and play grown up house. You can also give your kids a box of crayons and let them draw on the walls inside their playhouse for even more fun. This will give you a chance to encourage them to add their own personal touches to their new homemade toy. You might also consider the kinds of furnishings your kids would enjoy in thus type of playhouse. A thick blanket folded over a couple of times could be a couch or an old hatbox could serve as a table.

To make a cardboard playhouse, all you will need (in addition to a couple of boxes) is strong packing or duct tape, a box cutter, and some paint. The best benefit for parents making a cardboard toy is much more than a peaceful rainy day; it is an affordable one as well.
