If you’ve ever wanted to do a fun activity with your child and their kids playhouse, then this blog post if for you!  I can’t take credit for this activity as I stumbled upon it in a blog post by Super woman Brittany who demonstrated how to make a very simplistic but attractive address plate for their kids play house.

Here are the easy step-by-step directions for your very own address plate:

Step 1.  Purchase a wooden plaque and paint or stain from a craft store, Walmart or a dollar store.  Make sure your painting surface is well covered with newspapers.  Don’t forget paint brushes and wet rags to clean up any spills.

Step 2.  Have your child stain or paint the wooden plaque and allow the newly stained or painted plaque to dry.

Step 4.  Place the contact paper on the plaque and use black paint to blot the address on to the plaque.
