An Indoor Playhouse Just For Fun

What You Need

  • Sofa cushions
  • Chairs
  • Sheets
  • Pillows
  • Blankets
  • Party noisemaker (optional)
  • Cardboard boxes
  • Small cooler
  • Small juice boxes such as Juicy Juice® (4.23oz. or 6.75 oz.)

How To Do It

  • Clear an area around a sofa or bed.
  • Prop sturdy sofa cushions or pillows near the sofa or bed to form the walls of the playhouse. Use chairs, if necessary, to prop up the cushions or pillows.
  • Build the roof by draping sheets over the walls.
  • Put a smaller pillow on the floor between two upright sofa cushions to construct a window.
  • Create a door with a sheet or blanket. Or, build a tunnel entrance by tilting cushions together.
  • Use a party noisemaker for the doorbell.
  • Use cushions, blankets and cardboard boxes to make furniture.
  • In place of a fridge, furnish your playhouse with a small cooler filled with ice cold Juicy Juice. It’s polite to have cool drinks to offer your guests!


  • To make a split-level playhouse, use a bed or couch for the upper level and the floor as the lower level. Or, build your playhouse on a bunk bed.
  • Make sure your playhouse does not block halls and passageways.
