What to do with a giant box? Make a castle..

All three of my children LOVE cardboard boxes, so when we found this giant one we wanted to do something fun with it.

This is what we made.

All I did was cut out a door and some crenellation’s, then I gave Z and S some paint, glue and paper and let them go mad. They had a brilliant time, we even managed to write some numbers on some of the ‘bricks’ to get some writing practise in.

What do you think?

The flag is from Muddy Puddles, I think we need to find a better mast.

    I think it is wonderful! I have been wanting to get my kids a big box, but I don’t think about it when I am out and about. We once made a house out of a box and my daughter who was 2 at the time had so much fun and she drew and painted on it for at least two weeks. Boxes are the best! Thanks for sharing on Monday Madness.
