Vir­tu­al Giant Dolls House

March 2020

In this unusu­al time, we are all acquaint­ing our­selves with new restric­tions on our per­son­al space and com­mu­ni­ty. Being in a con­fined space on your own is dif­fi­cult. Being with your loved ones for over a month is, whilst a bless­ing, also tire­some at times; it is for this rea­son that the Giant Dolls’ House is pro­vid­ing a wel­come activ­i­ty to help fill your days!

Through mak­ing a dolls’ house in a shoe­box, we hope to bring a lit­tle fun and cre­ativ­i­ty into your life whilst show­ing the impor­tance of com­mu­ni­ty and sup­port in times such as these. All you have to do is find a box (it doesn’t have to be a shoe­box!) and dec­o­rate it in a way which reflects your expe­ri­ences, emo­tions and sur­round­ings in times like these. Along with your box, write a lit­tle sto­ry, or expla­na­tion about it and why you chose to dec­o­rate it as you did – we love hear­ing about your experiences!

For this instal­la­tion of the Giant Dolls’ House, how­ev­er, we are going vir­tu­al. So, when you’ve fin­ished it, post it onto your social media, tag us, and then we will take your box and bring it togeth­er into one big social­ly dis­tanced, self-iso­lat­ed, dis­in­fect­ed com­mu­ni­ty ! Instruc­tions will be on the web­site and social media.
