      Shoebox School For Pretend Play

      I’ve been taking a little time off from crafting and blogging this summer, a little screen-free time has been long overdue to spend as much of my time as possible with Miss Molly…. and catch up on a few Netflix series :)

      Taking a little break from the sun yesterday to ‘make something together’ we fashioned together a pretend-play Shoebox School for Molly’s lego friends, the first of a few back to school crafts I had in my head. Her rule was “if it doesn’t fit in the door, it couldn’t come to school” – so the poor Playmobile characters had to stay at home! the playroom is such a harsh environment!!

      Quick & Mess-Free Crafting – 30mins or less

      This is the first Duck Tape craft I’ve published on MollyMoo – makes for very quick and mess free crafting, no need for papier mache, paint or clean-up to speak of! bonus all round.

      Materials List

      – Shoebox
      – Duct Tape

      Tools: Scissors, craft knife and ruler

      There’s always plenty of shoeboxes around between now and September with back to school shoe purchases. If you don’t have any just pop into your nearest shoe shop and ask for one, they always have some ‘in the back’.

      Start by cutting out your window and door openings with the craft knife and ruler.

      Then just cover the box and lid with the duck tape.

      back to school crafts shoebox schoolI used silver for the roof, brown for the walls and white for the window and door trims. The only other duck tape I had was blue polka-dot and I didn’t think that would fly on the classroom walls :)

      And that’s it….. the shoebox school is ready to inspire hours of imaginative play.


      I just ADORE the little posters Molly drew for the classroom walls xoxox

      ” Look with your eyes, listen with your ears, and keep quiet”…. a cute little insight into what was going on in her class lastyear :)
