Remember that amazing DIY cardboard castle playhouse? It’s fabulous! But perhaps just a little, er, large?
If you’re looking for a smaller project for your young Shining Knight and Little Princess, Enchanted Learning offers free instructions for making a box castle that’s a simple construction on a much smaller scale. Use anything from a cardboard grocery box to a shoe box, depending on how big you want your cardboard castle to be.
4orMore‘s cardboard box ideas page suggests adding cardboard tubes for turrets and towers — you know, like a Disney fantasy castle. And of course, decorating the castle with paints and markers is half the fun.
Perfect for school projects on the Middle Ages and unlimited tabletop games of make-believe— and it’ll fit onto your child’s toy shelves when not in use!
