Make a cute little house in minutes with a soap box, some glue and a small piece of card stock.
Start with a standard box of soap.
Open it up along the seem. This step is not necessary. Turning the box inside out provides a clean surface to color on. You could cover the box in paper if you like.
Cut a door or window.
Glue box back together. Peak one end for the roof. I used paper tape.
Measure (just eyeball by placing your box onto paper) a piece folded paper for roof.
Glue onto peaked end. Use clothes pins or clamps to hold in place while it dries.
Give to child to decorate! Have fun!
