15 Minutes + Cardboard Box, Cardboard Tube and a Glue Gun

We got yet another delivery today, and yet another cardboard box.  The girls laid claim to the box pretty fast, and were busy piling supplies into it.  After a while they dug out a cardboard tube from my stash (I think it came from a roll of wrapping paper) and came to me with the usual question - "Can you make us something with these?"  Hmm ... a quick bit of thinking, and then out came the glue gun.

Hey presto ... cardboard castle.  Complete with second story and ladder.

Seriously, this took less than 15 minutes to make.  I just cut the cardboard tube into four sections.  Added some hot glue to each corner and stuck the "turrets" in place, cut two strips of cardboard and glued them in place to be the second story, and used a craft knife to cut out the door.  The ladder was made with four ice lolly (popsicle) sticks.  The last step was using a black marker to draw some detail on the door.  Cardboard rocks!
