Speaking of cool DIY pop-ups, don't miss out on this fantastic homemade playhouse featured on Make Baby Stuff!
Certainly a quick, eco-friendly, and thrifty way to make your tot their very own pop-up playhouse, this fun mini-manse can be easily made by Mom or Dad with the following materials: large cardboard boxes, duct tape (the most useful item in the universe!), glue, a boxcutter, an X-ACTO knife, and some paint. Not only does Mom Taryn include image of her mini-house plans, but there's also a complete walkthrough that leads you through the construction process, step by step (we love how she even included a skylight on top!). Overall, this playhouse is a perfect alternative to the store-bought plastic ones, and with only a little planning and building time, it's practically free!
