In this publication, I will give you a simple way to make a cute house with a very easy steps.

Let's start

Teacher Notes

Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.

Step 1: What We Need

- A big square of cardboard 160*160 cm or up.

- Ruler or any other measuring tool.

- Painting tape.

- White glue or wood glue.

- marker.

- knife.

- Some Acrylic colors for decoration.

- Painting brush

Step 2: Preparing Cardboard

Prepare the cardboard piece on a flat ground, divide one side in to four sections 40cm each, make the same thing with the opposite side, then draw lines vertically towards the center of cardboard 40cm each too to make four squares (40cm*40cm) in both sides, mark the dotted lines as shown above.

You can use a bigger piece of cardboard but remember it should be a square for better result and divide each side in to equal four squares.

Step 3: Cutting and Folding

Cut along the solid lines and fold along the dotted ones.

Step 4: Gluing

Glue the inner tow squares No. (2) behind No. (3) so that are forms a 90 degree at the middle dotted line then put the other two squares No. (1) & No. (4) as shown.

Repeat the above process for the other side.

>>>>>>>>>and we have almostly finished.

Step 5: ​Cutting Windows

I made a window in each side, actually I postponed cutting door to the end of painting.

Step 6: Painting

I used the tape to ensure regularity when painting borders and make the cutting edges invisible.

Step 7: The Final Result

I hope to be useful and interesting

Thank you.

    This is a really adorable house but as you mentioned one may want to use a bigger piece of cardboard.
    I really like how you made it from one single piece thus making it sturdier.

    I almost feel like making an adult sized cardboard house!

    Thanks for sharing!
