The Paper Playhouse Review
Reviewed by Christine Weiher, Editor, AllFreeKidsCrafts.com
It's just about that time that we realize technology truly has taken over our lives. With cell phones in hand, Tablets in our bags and people walking all over the place playing Pokemon Go, the kids have lost sight of the good 'ole days of playing outside. What happened to getting creative with cardboard boxes and stacks of popsicle sticks? It's time to bring back the easy days of using paper, boxes, and books with The Paper Playhouse.
This 144 page book couldn't have come at a better time; artist Katrina Rodabaugh tells all about her upcycling in this unique book. You'll find inspiring designs and techniques that use sculpture, bookbinding, printmaking, collage and even ideas for public art; this truly is a great book to use your imagination.
Easily accessible materials like shoe boxes, envelopes, books, shipping boxes and newspapers can be turned into amazing works of art like dollhouses, monsters, costumes, masks and more. Using duct tape, straws, a shoe box and a few other materials you can make an Airstream Travel Trailer to use with all the toy cars in the house; you and the kids will love the vintage charm.
Toward the back of the book you will find templates for many of the projects. There are 22 projects featured in The Paper Playhouse, and kids and adults alike will love getting creative and remembering a fun pastime. Make king and queen crowns and then dive into a paper dollhouse or a cute lemonade stand; you'll never be bored when you have this book on-hand.
