Little house in the forest

There are many different kinds of folk tales, with thousands of regional and cultural variations, but they all share a few common characteristics. At the most basic level, we can say that a folk tale is a story passed down orally from generation to generation. The action usually take place around the forest, field or small village. You can call it Dramatic play but for us it is Great Performance our favourite tales.
First of all, should be little house - like this:

Oh, sorry, this is no too little house, first was this:

Both houses, made out of card board boxes, stable enough, roof attached with hot glue, painted with acrylic paint.
Enjoy our play!
