I can imagine that those of you with children would find that they grow out of toys so quickly. And those fancy dolls’ houses? Some of them are so intricate that they look like they’d cost a week’s pay, yet the little one will probably grow out of it in a couple of years.
How about transforming a basic cube bookcase into a dolls’ house with a few simple tweaks like in this tutorial from Honest to Nod? It will get your child involved in creating and decorating their own ‘house’, then when they’ve grown out of it, it can be turned into storage for their books and games.
