Build-a-treehouse Printable




Dreaming of a treehouse this Summer? Here's a shortcut for anyone, anywhere to have one, too! Follow below to make these Pint-sized Tree houses in printable versions below! You already have all of the supplies you need. I just know you do. Let's start making!

(Click below for full post)

SUPPLIES:
- Paper Towel Tubes
- Treehouse Template (see below)
- Decoration Materials: colored paper, cardboard, crayons, paint, glitter paint --- use your imagination.
- Scissors
- Tape


Let's Start Making:

To get started, gather supplies and then, choose a template and print:

- US: Tree House PDF Template - US letter sized | Click here
- A4: Tree House PDF Template - A4 | Click here : 

1. Print Template onto heavy card stock. If your printer won't print on heavy stock, print out the temple on regular paper and trace it onto cardboard or color directly on this printout and paste it onto card stock/card board. 
2. Color or decorate tree and house as desired.
3. With scissors, cut up in quarters approximately 1/3 of the way down the paper tube.
4. Assemble by first pressing the large branch down into the slot; followed by the smaller branches.
5. If you would like to play with this, cover the top of the paper tube by either taping a piece of fitted paper to the top of the tube or by covering with wide tape. At this point, embellish with any extra pieces -- a paper ladder, a climbing rope, for example.
6. Fold and tape the Treehouse and then, slide over the top of the paper tube.
