Recycled Castle by Khali from Little. Lovely. …use household paper items you’d normally recycle to make this fun castle. 

What you'll need:

* 2 kitchen paper tubes
* 4 toilet rolls
* 1 small box
* 4 straws
* A4 sheets craft paper
* Scissors
* Cellotape
* Coloured marker pens


step one:
..remove flaps from box and cut small rectangles from the top of each side to
make castle battlement.
step two:
..cut the kitchen tubes in half to make four. Evenly centre the tubes on each box
corner and mark where the box and tube meet. Cut in about 1 in. along the
marked lines and slide the tubes onto the corners of the box.

step three:
.. cut triangles from craft paper and secure to end of straws with cellotape. Attach
the straws to the inside of the tubes.
step four:
.. draw a door and two windows on craft paper, cut out and attach to the front of
the castle with cellotape. 
step five:
.. cut 4 shapes from A4 sheet of craft paper that resemble tops of trees. Cut two 1 in. slits into top of toilet roll, directly opposite each other. Slip paper shapes into top of toilet roll.

    This is great – and if you want a fantastic kids book to read to accompany this stylish castle, have a look at Castles by Colin Thompson ( I’ve been looking for a good project to do alongside this book to give me a chance to review it at my blog Playing by the book and now I’ve found it! THanks!
