Pebble and scribble

Creative and fun craft ideas for children

There was great excitement in our house yesterday morning when Al’s BBQ arrived for his birthday – we were of course excited by the arrival of the BBQ itself but perhaps even more excited about the prospect of making the box it came in into a castle for Ted. Once we had cello-taped the top up to make it higher and cut crenelations into the roof, we used some great packaging that came inside it to make an entrance with drawbridge. Ted has had a great afternoon playing in the castle, and has now decorated the inside with drawings on the wall.

The bats we made earlier on in the weekend have now taken up residence around the top of Ted’s castle.
