Picture of Free Childrens Cardboard Box Playhouse (Flat-packable)
Children love a cardboard box playhouse.  Usually they are built, played with for an afternoon and then thrown away, or hopefully recycled.  This Instructable will show you how to make a playhouse that can be built using only two bicycle boxes, in about five minutes, that can be flat-packed for storage, so you can reuse it again and again.

All you need is two bicycle boxes.  That is it! 
Cardboard boxes really are the best toys. :)

They are even more fun when you have a child to make them for.

Ditto! I still love cardboard houses! I want one in my size!

count me in!

I made a geodesic one big enough for adults, but I didn't take pics. If I make another, I will definitely make an Instructable.

She is adorable. She has a big wooden play house, but sometimes she asks for the little house and she just loves the door and windows.
