When you’re looking for some fun, imaginative activities to do with your kids when it is just too hot (or cold or rainy, depending on the season) outside it can sometimes be hard to keep the kids busy!

I love to encourage crafty projects with the kiddos! It takes up a lot of time, imagination, and they are always so proud of the end result. So when I got the chance to check out the products from Square One Kids, we were ecstatic!

Square One Kids makes Easy Playhouses and Easy PlayTown, the most versatile, eco-friendly playhouse products on the market, as well as good old-fashioned fun. These are the only reversible playhouses that serve as a kid’s craft activity and provide a safe play environment for your children. Watch kids use their little hands and big imaginations to create a place of their very own! All Easy Playhouse products are made of two pieces that can be assembled in 5 minutes or less, with safety wave cut edges to protect little fingers, and the Easy Playtown products are one piece, assembled quickly and easily. Square One’s products are made in the USA, made of recycled material and are 100% recyclable.

We received the Easy Playtown Set, mini versions of the full size playhouses they make. It comes with a little town square that can be colored in and used to make your kids’ playtown come to life!

Assembly was a cinch. My husband helped my son put the three houses together in a few minutes!

My son and his friends absolutely loved decorating them with their own imaginations. We put out crayons, colored pencils and tons of stickers and let the kids get to it. We ended up with some very colorful homes for our little playtown!

Now my son has a whole little town to use with his cars to drive around and use his imagination!

The houses and town square are all very sturdy and held up to some seriously silly kids throwing them around the house! I was impressed by their durability, and LOVE that they are recyclable once we are done using them.

These awesome (reversible!) playhouses, both big and small are a great way to encourage your kids to be crafty and imaginative, and to also make for some really fun family time! Decorate them together, talk about what each building should be, and enjoy a fun family activity (or a great way to have fun during a playdate!) full of imagination.
