I want to build my girlsa playhouse out of several cardboard boxes etc I've collected. the problem is that I don't know how to do it without staples, tape or glue..!

Any ideas?

we just put the boxes on the floor and let the bunnies have at it. The make their own entrances and exits. We just replace with new ones every couple of weeks.

I used Elmer's glue, the type that's safe for children. Made a multi storied castle with enough space on each level for our bunnies to stand. Holes were cut between top and bottom boxes to allow access between levels and the bottom level was made of two long, low boxes, front and back with holes between them.
Determined size needed for our rabbits and used a pot cover of that size as a template.
