You don't need to spend a king's ransom on a play castle for your child! With this DIY Whimsical Cardboard Castle, you and your child can create a beautiful toy without breaking the bank. The easy paper craft takes upcycling to the next level, as it uses cardboard and even duct tape to get the castle off the ground. This castle can be customized any way you would like, too. Decorate the exterior with markers, paint, or crayons in your choice of colors, and consider adding fun details within the castle walls. Your child's creativity will soar with this kid-friendly paper craft. This is one project that is fit for a prince or princess!

Oh, that's awesome! I don't know if I would have the patience to do it exactly like that, but it's going on my "to do" list for sure. I love the materials she used, especially the kleenex box. It sure doesn't look like "garbage cardboard" when she is finished with it!
