How to Make Paper Houses

Artistic Expressions, Enrichment, From the Teacher, Grade 4, Grade 6, Homeschoolers No More, Images, Science, Sibika/Makabayan, The Son, Weekends, Younger Daughter 1 Comment

Here are a few tips on how to make paper houses.

If like me, you are design-challenged, it is better to look for available patterns in the internet to use for your paper houses.

Here is another post I made about making paper houses with some step-by-step instructions done by my then grade 3 daughter.

Here is a post about the materials to make paper houses.

Below is a photo of a pattern for a Gingerbread house that I was able to print out. Note however that I added space on the squares because these extra space will be what you will fold to glue to the other “walls” of your paper house. Note the yellow paper with extra flaps for gluing.

Paper houses

This is the end-product of the paper houses where the Gingerbread house pattern above was used:

Paper Houses

For the houses, you can just add details to make it more “home-y”. We did not elaborate too much on the houses we used for the project on communities because as a teacher myself, I doubt who made “perfect” projects being submitted by children. If I were to “grade” projects, I will not choose the ones that are obviously not done by the children themselves.


For the tree, we just spread glue on brown paper and rolled it to form the “tree trunks”. We cut one end to use as “roots” and as braces to make the tree stand. The other end was flattened so that the “leaves” can be glued over it. Two green papers were glued together with the flattened end on one side. When the glued paper dried, we cut to form the green part of the tree.

Church paper house.


School paper house:


For both the church and school paper houses, I made my own patterns here. To avoid unnecessary usage of paper, use used paper as your pattern to be traced on the paper that you will use for the final product. Textured paper is better because these give the structures some “character”.

Just add details to make these paper structures look “real”.

There I hope I was able to help you make paper houses.

Parents, do not wait for the teachers to ask your children to make a community, you can have your children make their community like the wonderful Christmas villages we see during the Christmas season.

List of Room and Seat Numbers for Philippine Science High School Entrance Exams

Enrichment, From the Teacher, Grade 6, Mathematics, Philippines, Science 2 Comments

For those who will be taking the SY 2013-2014 Philippine Science High School National Competitive Exams on September 29, 2012, here is the link:

2013 Philippine Science High School National Competitive Examination, Alphabetical List of Examinees. 

The link includes the following:

  • name
  • examinee number
  • seat number
  • room assignment
  • test time
  • test center code
  • test center name
  • test center address
  • student’s school name
A few tips to those who will be taking the exams:
  • Prepare the things you need, two or three days before the exams: two (or more!) number 2 pencils, preferably sharpened, a good sharpener (just in case) and a good eraser plus your favorite snacks
  • For those who will take the test in the morning, sleep early so that you won’t feel light-headed during the test ( I know this is not easy especially if you are feeling the pressure of taking a difficult test)
  • For those with morning schedules, be at the testing center on or before 7 am. The test will start at exactly 8am.
  • Relax and do not be too tensed. If you are tensed you will feel tired easily and not be able to think clearly.

DO NOT FORGET to bring your examination permit and school ID.

If in case you did not make it, this is ok, remember that a school’s name does not make a man (or a woman).
