Jen from House of Wood built this knockoff Land of Nod play stand using plans from Ana White for her two favorite 3-year-old girls for Christmas last year.

It’s a “lemonade stand, farmers market, theater, post office, bakery… even a Psychiatric Help booth a la Charlie Brown” all rolled into one. Like Jen says, “The girls are only limited by their imaginations!”

As soon as Amanda from Mommy is Coocoo had a daughter she knew she wanted her to have a dollhouse. She loved the versatility of a bookshelf/dollhouse since her daughter may not want to play with dolls forever but would, of course, always have toys and books in need of storage. Amanda was able to create her own from a secondhand wooden dollhouse in need of a little love. With a fresh coat of paint, it’s the perfect little home for her daughter’s dolls or books and other toys!

Amy from Joyful Daisy has seen and made many different magnet boards but simply couldn’t wait to make another when she saw the round ones featured at The Land of Nod. Not only was Amy able to customize her magnet board with pretty fabric, ribbon, and a monogram but she saved a whopping 80% since she only had to purchase the pizza pan and the grosgrain ribbon. Even if you had to buy a small piece of fabric, this is a project that definitely wouldn’t break the bank!

She simply used Mod Podge to adhere scrapbook paper to her canvases and then animal silhouettes she cut with her Silhouette. The whole project took only 20 minutes with some drying time in between!

Forts made out of sheets… zippered play tents…large cardboard boxes… Kids love having their own “secret” hideaways. Christina from 2 Little Hooligans shares at The Girl Creative how she created a special retreat for her little ones using a hula hoop and twin sheets. Christina says this is a beginner project that takes just a couple of hours, and you sure can’t beat the price when store-bought play tents like this cost well over $100.
