Painter's Tape Paper Doll Playhouse


Activity Overview

When boredom sets in on a rainy day, grab some painter's tape or masking tape and have your kids become their own architects. Kids of all ages will have fun creating a paper doll playhouse on a blank wall or even on the carpet. This activity will keep kids actively creating and then give them a playhouse to pretend play with paper dolls. This activity is good for hours of entertainment and easy clean up.

Materials Needed

  • Painter's Tape or masking tape
  • Paper, scissors and drawing utensils for paper doll making.
  • A blank wall or clear carpeted area.

How to Make It

  1. Create paper doll characters out of paper and cut them out and decorate them if you like. Set aside.
  2. Take a roll of painter's tape or masking tape and start by making the outer dimensions of the doll playhouse that you would like to make. You will do this on a large carpeted surface or a blank wall.
  3. Tape away to your heart's content and make the roof, backyard items, driveway, garage.
  4. Then, use strips of tape to design the interior of the house, room by room with stairs. The possibilities are endless.
  5. Place a folded over piece of tape on the back side of your paper dolls if using a wall as your artscape and place them in the house. You don't have to do this with a carpeted surface.
  6. Have fun utilizing your imagination and pretend play throughout the house with your paper dolls.
