We added one of the cut of box flaps to the inside to make a little second floor in the castle
Next we got on to painting the castle. We decided to paint it grey. “but how can we paint it grey” asked Caitlin (4), “We don’t have any grey paint”. I explained to them that if we mix a bit of black paint with some white it would make grey. They both really enjoyed mixing the paint and thought it was magic when it turned to grey.
We don’t have any knights, so we raided the toy box to see what we could find. The kids decided to use the cavemen and monsters below, as the baddies, who were trying to get into the castle to kidnap the princess. The little white dog belongs to the princess.
here’s the princess and of course the princess needs to have a toilet in her castle
We used army men as the good guys, who where trying to protect the castle and the princess from the baddies.
Here Caitlin and Aaron are setting up the castle ready to have fun playing with it
