This easy castle craft is not only fun to do, but it provides a fantastic place to store your pens and pencils and helps you to keep your desk tidy!
You will need:
4 cardboard tubes
Cut any flaps off the box. Cut the tubes to size so that they are a couple of inches taller than the box. Glue one tube into each corner and leave to dry.
Paint the castle with the grey paint, then leave to dry.
With the black pen draw turrets around the top of the castle. Older children may prefer to cut the turrets out. Draw on windows, doors and stone work.
Now you can store your pens and pencils in the towers and your pencil sharpeners and erasers (rubbers) in the base of the castle.
