Milk carton, construction paper, utility knife, glue, markers and/or crayons.
Cover milk carton with construction paper. Draw in doors, windows and anything else that goes on a house. To have doors and windows that open, carefully cut three of the four sides with the knife so that the door or windows remain attached. A square piece of construction paper can be cut and glued along the top of the roof to form a chimney.
“Try using one colour of construction paper for the house and another for the roof.”
“Have the kids draw bricks, siding or rocks around the house. Tiles can also be drawn onto the roof.”
“Glue green or brown pom-poms around the bottom of the house to look like bushes.”
