If you’re looking for playhouse decorating ideas, you’ve come to the right place. We’ve scoured the internet and our brains (as we so often do) to come up with this curated shortlist. Let’s get into it, shall we?

Bring that wooden playhouse to life with a burst of colourful paints! Engage your little ones in the creative process and let their personalities shine. Let them take the lead in selecting their favourite hues and join in the painting fun.

For a whimsical vibe, adorn the exterior walls with baby pink or mint green colours. Pair these lively shades with crisp white window frames for a classic contrast. Or, transport them to a world of fantasy and make-believe with a regal touch of blue. Consider a mix of these hues, or let them choose their own unique colour palette.

2. Furnish with kid-sized furniture

It’s only fair to have your kid’s playhouse some furniture pieces suitable in their petite size. You can shop from local charity shops to keep it budget-friendly or get creative with DIYs. The latter approach can give you more customisation options.

For instance, consider a table and chairs. Start by measuring and cutting wood to the desired dimensions using a saw. Assemble the pieces using screws or nails and down any rough edges for safety. Attach the legs for the table and chairs, and include a backrest and armrest if preferred. Then, paint or decorate as desired.

Complete the setup with kitchen toys and imaginary treats. Your kids can now host their first playhouse pizza party and play the perfect host or hostess. Who knows, maybe they’ll invite you in for a slice!

3. Say goodbye to clutter with shelves and storage

Children often scatter their toys and books on the floor, or anywhere they please. Add shelves and storage to teach them the importance of tidiness. Encourage them to place their playthings where they belong in an organised space. The more you save floor space, the more room for them to play!

Tip: Designate a special area on the shelves where they can show off their collections. These could be their cherished action figures, trinkets, or seashells. Take this opportunity to use a treasure chest as their main storage. It’s a fun way to encourage your little pirates to stash their toys after playtime.

4. Hang fairy lights

There’s no better backdrop for tea parties than under the twinkling fairy lighting. The soft glow they emit as the sun sets is simply magical.

These outdoor lights add a touch of wonder and whimsy to your children’s playtime. They resemble tiny stars guiding their imaginative adventures, enhancing the experience. Whether they’re sailing as a captain or stepping into a fairytale princess, you name it!

Consider using solar-powered lights for an eco-friendly and cost-effective lighting solution.

5. Turn it into a gardening space

Why not encourage your kids to start their own garden? Turn their play den into a potting shed playhouse to nurture their green thumbs. Set up a small potting bench, add shelves for pots, and include a sandpit filled with soil. Place the structure where they can experience the magic of photosynthesis.

Teach them the importance of soil quality by showing them how to check for moisture and texture. Explain how different plants have varying needs for sunlight and water. Your budding botanists will love these hands-on opportunities. Most importantly, the joy of watching their plants grow and flourish.

Transforming a kid’s playhouse into a magical haven is both fun and rewarding. Let your imagination soar and create memories in their very own enchanted retreat!
