My son had a great time making this castle and King from recycled plastic at one of Blenheim Palace's kids activity events. You could easily try this at home with plastic or cardboard.

Cut a strip of the plastic with the classic up and down squares at the top.
Cut out a hole at either end half way up the sides.

Fold into a box shape and use a small cable tie or piece if string to secure.

Now is the fun part for your kid - decorating.

The chalkboard paint pens give good coverage and you can draw on plastic with them.

We used sticky back plastic to make a door and windows but you could glue on coloured paper instead.

Add a little flag and your castle is complete.

We also made a king with the same materials, perfect for a day out at Blenheim Palace.
