Topic/Context: Doll's House
Game Type: Craft Kit
Instructions: My First Doll's House
Quick Instructions: Follow the steps to put the doll's house together. Create a range of colours of modelling clay by mixing them together, as outlined in the instructions. The modelling clay can be used to create your own household items like a pot plant or a cushion. It is also what you will use as a base for sticking the character cut-outs onto, so that they can stand up.
Then cut out the characters, wallpaper, windows, furniture, and household items, etc. Choose which wallpaper to put where, apply glue to the paper and adhese to the walls. Position all furniture items in the house, be creative with where to put the glitter, and decorate with all the other items and art supplies!
Once the house is completed, children can be prompted by an adult with the three roleplay scenarios provided in the instructions. Using their imaginations, they can create the scenes and take it anywhere from there!
