There is nothing we like more than turning a fun paper project into a fun printable project.
My big kids have caught the printable bug off me, so when they learned to fold a cute origami ‘doll’s house’ at school, they came home full of ideas for turning it into a printable.
With a few alterations to the size and traditional folding instructions, and some creative inspiration from my kids, we created this fun folded paper doll’s house free printable, and a couple of cute printable people to live in the house too!
This cute little doll’s house is made from one A4 sheet of paper (if you are using US Letter sized paper just be sure to select ‘shrink’ or ‘shrink to fit’ from your printer options) and it is super quick and easy to fold. All you need for this project is the free printable house template, the printable Mr and Mrs Pickle, some markers, glue and scissors.
Start by colouring in Mr and Mrs Pickle, then cut them out and attach a folded paper tab to their backs so they can stand up.
Then you’ll need to add some colour and detail to the house. When it is folded the side with the tiled roof will become the outside of the house, and the other side will be come the inside. So don’t forget to add a garden out the front and some furniture inside.
When you are done simply follow the east step by step instructions in the video below to fold your house and you are ready to play.
We had a little village full of houses all made in an hour or so one afternoon!
This project is part of the Kids Crafts 101 Series, 14 easy children’s crafts made with everyday materials.
Some of my favourite creative bloggers have gotten together to share some fun crafty ideas.
Yesterday my friend Kate from The Craft Train shared a fabulous egg carton jewelry box project.
And way back at the beginning of the Kids Crafts 101 Series, Maggy from Red Ted Art shared some super cute Little Red Riding Hood characters made from toilet paper rolls!

If you make your own folded paper house and Mr and Mrs Pickle we’d love to see how they turn out. You can share your image on my facebook page, or post it on instagram and tag @katepickle or use #picklebums.
