RECYCLED CARDBOARD TREEHOUSE
I love the beautiful Magic Wood tree houses but the big ones are quite expensive so we thought we would make one ourselves using recycled cardboard!
MATERIALS: Large cardboard boxes, paper toilet rolls and kitchen towel rolls, paper, hot glue gun, string, twigs and pieces of wood.
TUTORIAL: Cut cardboard shapes for the base and different levels. We cut 2 of each shape and stuck them together to make them extra thick.
Cover the top of the cardboard with brown paper.
Glue the toilet rolls in position to make the legs for your different treehouse levels. I use a hot glue gun to attach the legs.
Add some ramps or steps between your levels.
We also added a winch lift system!
We added some extra details like logs for a camp fire and wood chairs.
Soon some wild dinosaurs moved in to our treehouse!
