All children enjoy the stories of princes and princesses who live in castles ... and now, thanks to this simple children's craft, they can recreate their adventures in a beautiful and ecological cardboard castle.
With a cardboard box, paintings and imagination we can make a beautiful cardboard castle for our children to play with, in addition to learning the importance of recycling and caring for the environment with recycled crafts.
- Cardboard box (better large, but any size and shape works)
- Scissors or cutter
- Thin rope
- Colored watercolors
- Black marker
- Wax paints
1. Choose a cardboard box of the size you prefer, if possible a rather large and square size. Remove the bottom and top cap, leaving a square. Mark four equal rectangles, one on each face at the top, and cut them out to make the towers.
2. In the 'holes' on each side mark and cut smaller rectangular notches to make the castle battlements.
3. At the bottom of one of the sides, draw a door and cut it out. Using the scissors or an awl, poke two small holes in the top of the hole and in the cut-out piece of cardboard. Pass a thin string through each hole and tie them together to make a drawbridge.
4. Use watercolors, colored crayons and a marker to draw the details of your castle. Ready to start playing!
