Every busy doll needs a weekend escape! This project is a fun and easy way to create a stylish holiday play scene. Young children will need help to make this but will enjoy picking out the scenes and creative play with the final result.

Choose your scenes

Cut out the picture so that is a few millimetres smaller in each direction than the lid of your box

Make sure your picture is a little smaller than your box lid

Laminate your pictures. You can laminate more than one on a sheet provided that you have a bit of space between each picture

Cut out each picture to fit the lid of your box snuggly, ensuring that there are a few millimetres of laminated plastic around each picture (otherwise they will delaminate)

Leave a little laminated margin around each picture

Hold your box lid upright and fit the base of your box into the lid so that you have a 'wall' and a 'floor' for your holiday scene. You could use some tape to hold it securely if it doesn't stand well on its own.

Fit the base into the upright lid

Now fit your scene onto the back 'wall'. If your picture is a snug fit, you shouldn't need any extra fixings, but you could use some double-sided tape to hold it in place if you have cut your scene too small.
Now add furniture and your dolls
