Make your own castle
We could have a few wet days ahead of us so here’s a lovely Recycled Castle craft project I latched onto…all you need is a small cardboard box, toilet rolls, coloured paper and straws – bits you’d normally throw into the Optibag. read on for step by step intructions
..remove flaps from box and cut small rectangles from the top of each side to make castle battlements
..cut the kitchen tubes in half to make four. Evenly centre the tubes on each box corner and mark where the box and tube meet. Cut in about 1 inch along the marked lines and slide the tubes onto the corners of the box.
.. cut triangles from craft paper and secure to end of straws with cellotape. Attach the straws to the inside of the tubes.
.. draw a door and two windows on craft paper, cut out and attach to the front of the castle with cellotape.
.. cut 4 shapes from A4 sheet of craft paper that resemble tops of trees. Cut two 1 inch slits into top of toilet roll, directly opposite each other. Slip paper shapes into top of toilet roll.
