Plant a Fairy Garden

Your kids may not care much for gardens, but a playhouse looks so much cuter with some colorful plants and flowers. Even better, plant a fairy garden outside and make the magic of play extend outside the borders of playland!

Add Play to the Outer Walls

Last, but not least, if you’ve got rambunctious kids who need more physical stimulation, be sure to add something outside the playhouse for that added exertion your kids need and want. Here’s a great website for play set accessories.

There are so many ways you can make your shed-turned-playhouse into a fun spot for your kids to play. They will have loads of fun, good memories, and best of all, you get a break. Remember that you should still have room to store some of your stuff. Consider adding a loft or shelf to store some of the stuff that won’t fit in your garage.
