Sometimes you just need a little inspiration, a little prompt, just to get you started.
“What will your house look like?”
“Who will live in it?”
“What colour will you paint it?”
A few open questions and this fun My House drawing prompt and the creativity started flowing.
We had so much fun with this one page drawing prompt. These cute little paper houses open up to show you what’s inside, and you can make the windows and doors openable too!

How to Make a Foldable Paper House Drawing
To make your own little house you’ll need:
- A sheet of paper
- Markers, coloured pencils or paints
- Scissors and/or craft knife (optional)
You can use our free printable My House drawing prompt, or design your own house.
This printable is an A4 sized pdf file, you will need a pdf reader such as adobe acrobat to open it. If you are printing on US ‘letter sized’ paper be sure to select ‘fit’ or ‘shrink to fit’ from your printer options.
Please remember that the printables at picklebums.com are for personal use only, you may not sell, share, or link directly to these files.
You need to do a few simple folds to turn your paper into a house…
Now that you have folded your house, you can carefully cut the windows and doors into flaps so they open up, and then you are ready to decorate.
It’s a good idea to close up your house, open the windows and doors, and draw what you want to see inside them first. Then you can add the rest of the inside details knowing whatever you want to see when you open the flaps are in the right spot.
We used markers for the fine detail and then used cotton buds (q-tips) with liquid watercolors to add lots of colour!
You could draw your own house, or a house from your favourite book, or a house from your imagination!
Who will live in your house?
We’d love to see your house!
