If your child is anything like mine, then there may be a whole zoo of animals strewn about the house at any given time. We had to ban the big ones from her bed, because they left her no where to sleep. So we decided to give these animals (namely the puppies) a place of their own.
This is a simple and quick project to involve your kiddos. We had this box from Costco- turn it upside down, glue on some grass and flowers, add a little name plate, and ta-da- a pint-sized dog house. I often find my 2-year-old halfway in there with the animals- She loves it!
