  • Our current cubby house doesn’t have a flkoor, but our previous one had. We had a doormat inside, curtains, a wee table & chairs, some pillow, books and kitchen & tea set

  • We keep all outdoor play areas easy to clean; floor that is easy to wash and keep clean. In fact all surfaces are easy to clean. Asking the children what they want in a cubby house is always good; they have such good ideas.

  • If you’re looking for lights the solar ones should be alright, and mostly weatherproof. I probably wouldn’t recommend carpet as it’ll likely get wet and go bad. You could try some rubber mat type flooring. Maybe check out kmart or bunnings,and then look up best pricing on Google.

  • We added a few things to our kids cubby. A whiteboard, a pull out clothesline (from the cubby to the fence), and because it was near the fence, in a corner about a metre or two out, my husband put in a sloping roof carport. My favourite addition was we added a water tank. The kids had their own water supply to use for any outside play. The water collected off the cubby roof.

  • I would look something like that up on Pinterest. I’m sure there are some very nice ideas online.

  • I would google away for some wonderful ideas; there are some very clever and creative people that have decorated cubby houses and shared their style.

  • Oh I forgot about Pinterest! I will have a suss. Thinking marine carpet so it won’t go funny. The planter pots would be cute

  • Outdoor cubby houses can get a lot of dust so I would have lino or floating floor that is easily cleaned.

  • I added a chalk board to my daughters and a pot plant holder with artificial flowers in it. It looks so cute

  • If you have windows, adding little window garden planters. If you’re worried about bees just plant some succulents.

  • even you can get some ideas from FB pages where i got some help

  • There are some fabulous ideas on Pinterest! We have just moved into a house that has a great cubby that needs some updating – I’ve been getting some great ideas from pinterest!
