Little Cardboard House

little cardboard housesIf you like to recycle, have a good old fashioned paper cutter and more time than money, this little cardboard house project is for you.



  • Corrugated cardboard
  • Paper cutter
  • Craft glue
  • Sharpie markers



  1. I found clean corrugated cardboard boxes and precut the 6 pieces for each student as shown above. A big old chopping-style paper cutter is the best way to go.
  2. Students used masking tape to tape the four sides together.
  3. The two roof pieces were taped together. Tacky glue was applied to the side tops, and the roof was placed on it. The tacky glue really works so great as it goes on thick and keeps pieces from sliding around too much.
  4. Students used scraps of cardboard to make window and door details, and then added decorations with Sharpies.
