Children are known for having an incredible imagination. When they have space to play and supplies to work with, it’s pretty amazing what they can come up with. If you’re wanting to create a space that is dedicated solely to your child’s creativity, a playhouse is the answer! 

In today’s blog post, the team at Better Built Barns is going to go over a few of the things that you need to create the perfect, background playhouse for your kiddos. Let’s get started.

The Perfect Structure

The first thing that you’re going to want to figure out is what you’d like the structure to be. This, afterall, is going to determine just how much space they have, where the playhouse is, and how you want to continue designing/organizing it. Our personal preference is a custom building from Better Built Barns. 

When you choose a custom building for your child’s playhouse, you can add all of the unique details that you know they’ll fall in love with. From cute cottage windows to an adorable front porch, we can make your kiddos playhouse as unique as you’d like.


Now that you’ve got your structured figured out, it’s time to fill your playhouse with all of the furniture that your little one will need to play. Most playhouses will have a table and chairs as well as a few shelves to store toys. This is always a good starting place and can be added to as you see fit. 

Aside from some adorable miniature furniture, you’re going to want to make this little playhouse feel homey, so adding some curtains and a rug can help warm the space up and make it look just like the home that they live in. Oftentimes, it’s these little details that make it all the more fun for kiddos to get creative in this new playhouse.

Tons of Toys

As we mentioned earlier, the supplies that a child has can help their creative mind travel even further. Nowadays, there are various toys that are designed to help children role play as parents, teachers, doctors, store clerks, and the like. These types of toys are exactly what every playhouse needs! Not only does this give them the chance to learn a little bit about different roles while getting the chance to play as much as their hearts can handle. 

If you’re going to build a playhouse for your kiddo, you want to make sure that it’s stocked with tons of toys! Even if you pull out some of the toys that are less frequently used inside of the house and moving them outdoors to the playhouse, make sure that there are lots of fun items for them to play and get creative with outdoors.
