Recycled Cardboard Haunted House

Britt and I made this haunted house for a special primary Halloween party at school. We are going to put it in the middle of a table to inspire children to draw their own Halloween haunted houses using white paint pens on black paper.

It is made of all kinds of cardboard boxes, from cereal boxes to lego boxes, opened, turned inside out, and glued back together with a glue gun. We used craft knives to cut out windows and doors free-hand, for a nice crooked spooky house. It was fun collaborating!

Britt's daughter is painting it black and is planning to add details, from monsters and ghosts, to curtains in the windows and tombstones outside. She is also going to cover the windows with yellow fabric, and put an electric lantern inside to light it up.

I can't wait to see what she comes up with and will post it here in a week or two!
