Haunted Houses


Today we decided to build haunted houses, with our left over cardboard boxes. Simple process really... Find card board box... imagine... cut out & paint. (I did the cutting, for safety reasons, but they had to draw, where I should cut)

The funnest part was listening to the stories the kiddo's would come up with while creating their houses. Trap doors, and secret chambers, underground labyrinths, passwords, and doors that automatically opened and closed! They were busy for hours.

Some times, a window also became a tombstone.



All in the details.
For some more adult fair, and resources on line, I've seen some awesome posts:

I'm going to do this with my nephew and nieces. Thanks for a great idea.
