Cardboard castle

12 Aug

This week we’ve been discovering all about ourselves, our country and its history. As part of this we created a castle from a cardboard box, some kitchen paper rolls and toilet paper rolls.

Here in Britain we have many great castles and when we went on holiday last month we were lucky enough to visit a couple of Welsh castles which the monsters loved exploring. This was their first experience of castles so I thought it would be an ideal time to do a castle craft.

We began by googling castle images to look at their main features. We then found the cardboard items that we needed and I decided to use my glue gun to attach it all together as I knew this would make it more durable.

The Limpet and I then got to work painting it all over. You can see on the next picture, a secret door we created at the back which I thought would make it more fun for playing with.

This was a fun activity to do and has the added bonus of now being able to be played with.
