Catapult kids to the time of knights and chivalry as they create an imaginary castle! Start the royal treatment by reading Nora's Castle or fairy tales.

  • 1.

    With Crayola® Scissors, snip off the top of a large sheet of construction paper so it looks like a palace or castle.

  • 2.

    With Crayola Construction Paper Crayons, draw several windows, doors, and other architectural features.

  • 3.

    Cut hinged windows or doors--leave one side attached so you can open and close them. An adult may need to help you get started.

  • 4.

    Cut pieces of more construction paper a little bigger than your window and door openings. Draw a scene on each one. Think about what might be happening inside the palace. Is the princess looking out her window? Is a knight getting ready to defend the cast

  • 5.

    Place the palace drawing face down with the windows and doors closed. Glue around the outside edges of each door and window with a Crayola Glue Stick. Place the scenes face down on the glue. When the doors and windows are opened from the other side, your scenes will appear.
