    Sounds to me like the Enchanted Learning cardboard castle project should pretty much fit your wishlist, Sky — it has a drawbridge, even! Obviously, this craft is designed for young kids, but there’s no limit to where you could take it with a bit of imagination… For example, you could use a tissue paper papier-mache technique to give texture to the block walls instead of just drawing them in with a marker.
