Step 12. A bit of paint and that’s that
And that’s it… as far as the building process goes.
Time to get imaginative with the painting and decorating.
Once painted, the spiral stairs can be put in place, the doors fitted, and the roof popped on.
Let the kid (or kids!) get involved with the decorating – they will love it.
Furniture can be made out of cardboard, blocks of wood, or bits and pieces found around the house – just to mention a few possibilities.
It is a good idea to have the dolls before the furniture-making process begins, to ensure everything is size compatible. Have fun!
