Posted by Happy Active Kids on

A wooden cubby house is a great play space for kids, but it can also be decorated and personalised to make it even more special.

Here are 10 fun and simple ways to do just that.

  1. Paint the exterior with bright and bold colours: Choose colours that your kids love, or even a theme that they're passionate about. Use stencils to add patterns or designs to make the house even more fun and unique.  See below vibrant example of the Warrigal Cubby House.Buy online - Warrigal wooden raised Cubby House - Happy Active Kids Australia

  3. Attach bunting or garlands made of fabric, paper, or felt: This is a simple and affordable way to add colour and charm to the cubby house. You can also make your own bunting with scrap fabric or paper.

  4. Install shutters or windows with flower boxes: This will give the cubby house a homey feel, and your kids will love caring for the flowers. You can even make your own flower boxes with a few supplies from the hardware store.
