Mi Casa es Su Casa

So work on the cardboard castle continues. We've made a lot of progress and, I think, we're getting quite close to completion. We still have to finish the turrets with cones on the top, and a couple of flags. We're going to "plant flowers" in the green land on either side of the drawbridge (it is a girly castle afterall!). And the moat just isn't complete until there's an alligator - so we'll be making an alligator in the near future. As you can see, a lot of work has been done to the interior, including quite a bit of interior decorating! There are several secret passageways and moveable parts that will make for fun play. And, we've also been working on constructing cardboard furniture, and sewing textiles like blankets, carpets and curtains.

I will take more pictures when the castle is finished. Though it may be a while yet - the possibilites for creativity are endless, and we're having a lot of fun designing and decorating.
