Hi! One day when I was sick I left a sub lesson plan for my students to design their own tree houses. I printed out examples of tree house drawings for inspiration, like these here and here. There is also this resource by Art Sub Lessons which has many pictures of real tree houses for inspiration.
I did not leave a lot of directions or specific requirements, but encouraged creative thinking and unusual designs.
Here are some of our whimsical pictures. I think they did a fantastic job!
Check out the treehouse on the lower right side. It is a treehouse made out of dogs!
In this picture below, the tree house on the upper right was made up of scraps of magazines!
