My husband and I rented a boring Red Box movie this weekend, so my crafting side took over. I may have made this little cozy home out of weekend boredom, but it turned out pretty cool. Plus, it’s almost summer, which in my house is called Otter Pop season, the only time we can justifiably pop the pops like no ones business. The box is good sized and sturdy, just calling to be used in the classroom.
1 Empty Otter Box (which means you will have to do something with those pesky pops…like eat them 🙂 )
*Make sure to only open the box half on the top for this use, but if you have it all the way open, it’s still good as a container of sorts.
Contact paper or colored paper of your choice
White paper to draw windows, doors, decor
Scissors, tape, glue
Markers (I used Copics)
Cover box with contact paper
Design extras and place them accordingly.
Be creative! You’ll make one hip home for figurines, fidgets, tools, YOU NAME IT!
