Step 1: Bill of Materials.

For this project all you will need is:

- 1 medium sized bowl
- 1 sheet of cardboard (24" x 6")
- a good X-acto knife
- marker
- tape.
- measuring tape
- 1 Smurf for scale

Step 2: Draw some details

The first thing I did was draw a Door around the smurf, so I know it fits.... then a window at the smurfs head height. 

Step 3: Size the house.

Roll the cardboard so that it's round and place your bowl over... Overlap the end and make it so it's sized right... mark it, so you can cut off the extra length.

I had started with a 24"x8" cardboard piece. I cut the height down to 6" so it was not so tall.

Step 4: Cut outs.

Cut the door so it opens, and cut out the window. Then turn it over and do a fast draw circling the window and adding the Door features.

Optionally you should have the kids colour and decorate now while it's flat! Mine wanted to play right away.

Step 5: Finish it up

Tape the ends of the house and put on the roof and PLAY!........

and because the roof comes off, they can put stuff inside and continue their story.... I am amazed just how often Jokey blows up the house o.O
