Here's a great activity that combines your child's love of crafting with a history lesson - making a Medieval Castle. After researching the necessary parts of the castle, we started with a few cardboard boxes and cut the crenellations (the top of the walls.) We made a gatehouse, a keep, and the walls and hot glued them together. Then my daughter spray painted the entire thing and added some details we printed from Google Images. All parts were labeled and we called it finished. Now three more to go until everyone is happily playing with their castle!
