Each Craft Model will come with six washable, non-toxic, jumbo markers to get the creative juices flowing.Crafty Kids Playhouses was previously known as Kids Craft Playhouses and has just been renamed to emphasize the fun eco-friendly craftiness of their full- and mini-sized playhouses.Playing with a cardboard box is nothing new, of course.

Once the “mommy bloggers” tested the products, the blogosphere heated up with adorable testimonials from grateful moms.Ava has truly enjoyed decorating her Creation Cottage Craft Model from Crafty Kids USA! I had an inkling it would be perfect for her when I saw it; she loves to color and draw. It arrived and took a minute or two to put together, not difficult or complicated at all and is also very sturdy! Then she started decorating! She is three, so, for her “decorating” is a little bit like scribbling her favorite colors all over it and making lots of circles, but she had a ball and I loved watching her get so into it! I am always reminding her that we only write on paper, so this was a nice change from the norm around our house! She thought it was extra special she got to write on a little doll house! after she finished her decorating, she moved in her princesses and horses and continued to play…and decorate some more! Love that is is made of 100% recycled material and it’s such a fun activity for children. Perfect for those hot or rainy days when you are cooped up indoors! Tomorrow we might even bust out the paints and paint a little bit on it! So fun!
