Outdoor Playhouse Review by Savingsandmore.com

Playhouse
This adorable little Playhouse totally makes me wish I was little again!  The KidKraft Red Roof Outdoor Playhouse is made of weather-resistant wood so it’s the perfect outdoor toy for just about any climate.  Being weather-resistant is super important when it’s really cold and snows for 5 months out of the year.   The Wood is such great quality.  This may seem like a small thing but even the grain of the wood was going in the right direction.  Although it is the wood is weather resistant, I would strongly recommend using wood sealant that is non-toxic  and oil based to preserve the wood for years to come.

KidKraft Red Roof Outdoor Playhouse took my husband and Father in Law around 3-4 hours to assemble.

Thankfully, it came with step by step directions that helped guide us and made sure we didn’t have any left over screws or pieces. I hate when that happens…

With cute little helpers like this, it always makes the job go faster. I loved seeing how excited and eager the kids were to help. It totally turned into a whole family project.

One of my favorite features on the KidKraft Red Roof Outdoor Playhouse is the working door and windows. The colors are warm and inviting, and the paned windows and door are easy to open. I think it makes it that much more realistic and imaginative. The kids love it!

This playhouse is big enough for multiple kids to play in at once, which is super important when kids play together. We all know they already have enough to bicker about.

I’m so in love with the KidKraft Outdoor Playhouse for so many reasons.
  • Quality
  • Look
  • Size
  • My kids love it

They have already spent hours playing and using their imaginations.  This playhouse is the coolest thing since sliced bread.

How to Help Make Back-to-School Time More Fun

Back-to-school (BTS) time can be a bittersweet moment.  For the parents, it's probably more of a relief and for the kids, it can be a hassle.  BTS time means homework, early morning schedules, etc.  Sometimes fun, but usually not so much.  It's important to keep the summer fun vibe going as long as you can to make the thought of going to school less daunting.

A fun way to make those first few weeks of homework seem like less of a big deal is to work on homework outside.  Turn on some light tunes, prepare some summery after school snacks and drinks and have a little homework session in the summer sun.  Try investing in a fun table and chairs set to make the idea more enticing.  We're loving this adorable outdoor Octagon Picnic Table from Kidkraft.

This kids picnic table from Kidkraft is made from solid, high quality wood, is quick and easy to assemble and is super affordable.  Priced at around $149 at stores like Walmart and Amazon, this is a must-have item for the backyard.
Disclosure:  I received a free product from Kidkraft to facilitate my review.  Any opinion expressed in this article is based on my experience with the product.

Each kids picnic table comes with a classy striped umbrella with a wooden pole to complete the look.  My daughter loves that she has her own "big girl umbrella."  It's actually very well-made with nice, thick fabric.  Plus the colors are so fun. What kid wouldn't want to do their homework under this thing?



The little chairs that go with this kids picnic table are so sturdy and durable that my husband and I can actually sit on them.  We love to sit at our daughters kids table with her and enjoy snacks and picnic lunches.  I think she gets a kick out of mommy and daddy sitting at her little table.



Kidkraft is a leading wooden toy and furniture making that has been around for over 40 years.  Their product list ranges from toddler beds to outdoor play equipment to children's decor and beyond.  My family has used many Kidkraft products over the years and we've been pleased with them.  If you'd like to learn more about the products that Kidkraft has to offer, head over to www.Kidkraft.com.

Do you have any tips to help make BTS time more fun?  Please share them in the comments section below!
