Must be a reason why your King of my Castle! Apart from your Father, of course ;) This cardboard box has been his favourite so far. Playing peek-a-boo, opening and shutting the drawbridge and pulling himself up to standing. It has been simple to make too!


You Will Need:

  • Scissors

  • Marker pen

  • 1 x Large Cardboard box - We used HP packaging @hp

  • 1 x Cardboard Product Protector Packaging

  • Small box for support - We used birchbox packaging @birchboxuk

  • Glue gun

  • Soft blankets

  • Cushions


Steps:

  • For the castle you will need a large cardboard box and for the tooth shaped parapet we used the product protector packaging.

  • Using your marker, mark the outline of your drawbridge.

  • Cut out your draw bridge, leaving the bottom line connected.

  • Split up your protector packaging into 4. Unfold the top of the box and slot them to sit along the top edge.

  • Move on to marking out your windows.

  • Cut a small sturdy box (we used a birch box) into 4 to support the corners of the box to keep them upright. Using a glue gun attach the supports to each corner.

  • Cut out your windows and add stone frames to them and the drawbridge. Mark out a grid pattern to create the defence gate on the drawbridge.

  • Cover any rough or exposed edges with tape to make them smooth.
