It's a playhouse, it's a puppet theater, it features a giant felt board exterior! It's a toddler's dream space come true -- all thanks to one green mom's resourcefulness and ingenuity!
Petite Planet reader Jeanne from Portland, OR submitted this adorable abode she made for her daughter out of the cardboard box her new baby brother's crib was shipped in.
- Crib box - one side cut in half, other side still intact, but with a window cut out
- One roll of regular duct tape (to attach & reinforce structure)
- One roll of red duct tape (to match & attach felt to box)
- 3 yards of red felt to cover structure
- Box cutter
Keep the lip on both sides of the box intact to maintain the strength of the structure.
Jeanne embellished the box with felt flower cut outs, people cut outs, and curtains that draw open and closed to be used for puppet show entertainment.
Thanks for the tip, Jeanne!
