Cut a Castle Craft
The Cut a Castle Craft is an entertaining creative project for you and your kids. You'll be the ruler of the land in your very own castle.
How to Make the Cut a Castle Craft
What You'll Need:
- White Cake Box
- Blunt Scissors
- 4 Paper Towel Tubes
- White Paper
- Transparent Tape
- Markers or Poster Paints and Paintbrush
- Construction Paper Scraps
- Craft Glue
Step One: Cut a drawbridge in the side of the clean cake box. Cut out a square from the top of the box. The hole is the opening for the courtyard, and the rim is the base for the battlement.
Step Two: Make four towers from the paper towel tubes. Wrap white paper around the tubes, and secure it with tape. Make a cone for the roof of 1 tower. Tape it to the top of a tube. Tape a tower to each corner of the box.
Step Three: To make the wall around the battlement, cut four strips of white paper into a comb shape. Make them long enough for each side of the box. Tape them around the castle's top edge.
Step Four: Use markers or paint to decorate the castle with windows, vines, and bricks.
Step Five: To make a flag for the castle tower, cut a scrap piece of construction paper in a triangle. Glue it to a toothpick. Insert the toothpick in the top of the cone on the tower, and glue it in place.
