Our Play Space: Christmas Comes to the Dollhouse

This weekend Immy discovered that Christmas had come to the dollhouse!

Simple to put together, it invites hours of imaginative play.

The garland is made from scrapbooking paper and embroidery thread.

The flashing lights are a light-up Christmas necklace that I found at the $2 shop.

The chimney is simply a small box wrapped in coloured paper onto which I drew a brick pattern. And Santa – a pipe cleaner folded in half with pants and boots cut from felt. Pretty much everything is held together or attached with thin, double sided tape.

The mantlepiece and stockings are made from coloured cardstock and felt.

The tree is a piece that fell off our big tree, hot glue gunned unto a drink bttle cap and decorated with sequins.

Merry Christmas Beaver family!

Do you have a child who would love a little Christmas visited upon their dollhouse? Or bat cave? Or train station? Or parking garage? Or underwater world?

    Absolutely brilliant!!! We have built a fireplace bulletin board at the preschool with a fireplace and mantel so we could hang up the stockings made by the children….I am definitely going to add one of those, Santa’s feet stuck in the chimney props. The children will roar after seeing it because on Friday we read a book about Santa getting stuck in the chimney. They got quick a kick out of the idea. So funny. Thanks for sharing as you do so wonderfully! Merry Christmas Hugs, Deborah
