Make an indoor cubby house
There's nothing more fun than creating a cosy secret space like an indoor cubby house! Your kids will lose themselves for hours playing natural imaginative games in their cubbies and playhouses that they helped create.
What you need:
- Blanket or bedspread
There are many ways to make an indoor cubby-house. Using the dining room table is the easiest. Watch the video below to find out how to make an indoor cubby house using the dining room table:
Place a blanket or bedspread over a table or a couple of chairs to create a private space. You may need to use a few pegs to secure the cover to your furniture so the cubby doesn't collapse in the middle.
Children can bring cushions and blankets into their indoor cubby house.
- Indoor cubby houses are an excellent way to encourage imaginative play - after all, a cubby can easily turn into a hospital for sick teddies, a school room, a house, a rocket ship, or any other flight of fancy!
- Gnerally, kids love to have a door on their cubby house, so try to use a blanket or bedspread that's big enough to create a flap they can use to shut out the real world while they enjoy their make-believe games.
