Loo Roll Castle
Not everyone lives in a house. Some people live on boats, in vans, in bungalows and trees.
Imagine you could live in a castle! With this activity you can build your dream castle, on a smaller scale of course.
We’re going to be building a luxurious castle from…well…some of the most “bog standard” materials, toilet roll tubes! So get collecting because you’re going to need quite a few! We have made quite a complex tower using lots of tubes, but you could simplify it.
Hint – For this activity you might need a few days. This is because you will need to wait for paper mache to dry, then wait for paint to dry! So rather than sit and stare at it, we recommend making a workstation that is ok to leave in place for a few days while you work on it.
Make sure to put newspaper down to protect any surfaces!
Fact – did you know there are roughly 10,852,383 castles in the world. That’s 10 million, 852 thousand, 3 hundred and 83 castles (soon to be 10,852,384 once you’re done!) Many of them can be visited, so you could perhaps see what they are like in person!
