Turn a cardboard box into a glorious castle fit for a king and queen … and their magical animals.
Gather your supplies
Sturdy cardboard box
Pencil and eraser
Acrylic paint and paintbrushes
Stickers and stick-on gems
- Step 1: Using a ruler and pencil, mark out the castle battlements and towers on the cardboard box (use the picture as a guide). Ask an adult to help you cut these out with scissors or a craft knife.
- Step 2: Draw a drawbridge at the front of the castle. Using the point of a pair of scissors, poke 2 small holes in the top of the drawbridge and 2 holes in the wall above. Cut out the drawbridge, leaving the bottom still attached.
- Step 3: Paint the castle in your favourite colour. Let dry, then add stickers and stick-on gems. Thread a piece of string between drawbridge and wall holes, making sure to tie a knot at each end so the strings don’t slip through. Now you’re ready to play.
