King and his Castle
5 to 10s
My son had a great time making this castle and King from recycled plastic at one of
's kids activity events. You could easily try this at home with plastic or cardboard.
: 20 minutes
: Under 5's, 5-10's
Corrugated plastic or thick cardboard
Small cable tie or string
Liquid chalkboard pens
Materials to decorate (scraps of paper, foil, sticky back plastic, pipe cleaners, feathers)
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.
Posterman chalkboard paint pen
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.
