I'm in love with this adorable origami doll house at Tuts+! The house can be big or small depending on the size of the paper you use. This is perfect for days when it's too hot to go outside or you need something quick to entertain the troops!
Take a look at this tutorial for miniature papier mache circus animals if only for the cuteness of it all! The fire ring is amazing don't you think?! You will learn how to make a wire armature to build the papier mache around. This is a wonderful project for older kids to make and younger kids to play with! Details at Small World Land.
