As soon as they begin walking and speaking, our children start looking for a place just for them. They love entering a world of fun and play that only they can see and understand. But, when they can’t leave the house, often their play leaves the boundaries of their imaginary world and they use the whole house as their playground, creating a lot of damage along the way.
That’s why we need to make those boundaries of fun obvious for everyone, by making a space just for the kids, their very own playhouse in the house. With these top 10 DIY projects, you will have an indoor playhouse almost for free and your kids will have their own corner of endless fun without tearing down the house.
