Paper house campaign

With this activity, kids can print, color and decorate paper houses. Mail them along with letters to your local elected officials and tell them you want to help families in your community live in safe and decent homes.

Create your house

View and print the paper house template design PDF, generously donated by Marilyn Scott-Waters.

Write a letter

We have created sample letters to mail with your houses to your local elected officials. The electronic versions can be edited before printing. The handwritten version can be printed and completed by younger children. Files are in .doc format.

Send your letter

Find out who your elected officials are and tell them you care about housing!

Get creative

Remember to work in partnership with your local Habitat affiliate to best support affordable housing in your community.
