1.5 Dollar Playhouse

Things that make you happy don’t have to cost a lot of money.

I cut out a playhouse for my baby out of discarded refrigerator box and pasted coloured cardsheet and glaze paper flowers. It costed 100₹ (1.5 USD) and 2 hours.

Playhouses tall enough for my baby to stand in cost 5000₹ (75 USD) upwards.

Best part: She helped me create it.

Second best part: We can change the colour for another 100₹! I’m planning to add multiplication tables to the design.
