Houses come in a million different shapes and sizes, so why not encourage your students to try some different ones out?

This little cottage was inspired by many cute little paintings found over on Pinterest, and it’s a reminder of how inviting homes can look when they are simple and tidy with lots of lovely landscaping around them. No need to draw all the little leaves and branches though, just make them large bushy shapes and maybe a mountain or two and they’ll give the same effect with a lot less work.
