The Home-Made House Box

We all love to decorate our homes: painting walls; moving furniture; hanging pictures; and making it our own! But it’s mostly stuff for grown-ups… One of the only real opportunities for children to have a go at interior decoration is with a doll’s house, those beautiful miniature houses with their separate rooms, often displayed behind a door that opens and shuts. So, in this box we are going to build our very own doll’s house and then decorate it any way we want!

What's inside the box?

  • A booklet introducing the theme, with information about artists, art styles and techniques.
  • Creative prompts for your home-made house, decorating the exterior, the interior and making furniture. Appropriate for children of all ages (4+ years)
  • Includes LoLA book recommendations for further reading.
  • Plenty of quality art materials for your child.
