Created by Katherine Belsey, the Pop-Up Paper House is a more practical alternative to traditional doll houses.
This design has two stories and eight rooms in total, yet it can actually be folded down and made flat for safe storage and easy portability. The paper construction is sturdy and durable, yet it keeps costs way down. You can build this yourself easily by downloading the PDF version online and cutting out the pieces, or for an even quicker way, you can purchase the templates in a booklet format. There are also instructions on how to make the structure out of foam core, and a hardboard version is also available.
For a fun craft for the kids, try the Pop-Up Paper House.
