Cardboard Castle.



Wanted to share a #PrincessPlayCastle I made few days back with cardboard boxes, which we also used for our princess/pirate birthday party.



I cut out some windows and a castle door. For the castle door used a rope to close and open the door. Kids love that they can open and close the door.


I covered the boxes with brown paper and drew bricks with permanent marker. I painted the door after covering it with brown paper.

  6. LOVE. Adore. Want. This is truly a simple joy. My boys would have so much fun with this. Try making a card board box maze sometime. Not nearly as pretty looking, but the kids go wild for it. We have done that for a couple birthday parties.

  12. This looks awesome. My kids have so much fun with cardboard boxes. Maybe this is something we could do this summer - the older ones would have fun being in charge of the cutting and decorating, and the younger ones would have fun playing in it.
