Straw-Bale House Kit

SKU: W80912
A Pitsco Exclusive


By using Styrofoam blocks to replicate straw bales, we’ve devised a no-mess way for students to construct a 1/2" scale model straw-bale house. Our kit comes with 90 “bales,” a baseboard, balsa wood strips for door and window framing, foam board for the roof and interior walls, scaled paper patterns, and step-by-step instructions that include inexpensive methods for finishing the model, such as using stucco made from flour, water, and food coloring. Finished dimensions: 10-3/4" L x 8-1/2" W x 7" H. Tools required: steel straightedge ruler, hobby knife, and cool-melt glue gun.


Grades: 6-12



  • Level: Middle School to High School
