Cardboard Playhouse

Create a housing estate using cardboard!
Only ‘A Beautiful Mess’ could turn an ordinary piece of cardboard into hours of child entertainment. Obviously, younger kids may be satisfied with their cardboard Zen Zones, but older are a bit more demanding.

We were truly delighted when we found Cardboard Playhouses as beautiful as in a fairy tale. Elsie and Emma did an astonishingly good job putting together cardboard boxes and wallpaper. The houses their produced, turned out to be ideal for toddlers’ party. So as you can see even old worn off boxes give vast play opportunities.
