We have been exploring castles for the last few weeks.
Remember we are building a gingerbread castle with our big buddies?
Today we started to put it together.
The towers are together but we need to give them a bit of time to become firm and not fall apart.  We'll continue on Friday.
In our class room we made a much bigger castle, one that we can play in.
A parent brought in 2 very large boxes and we built the castle around our climber/slide.
We spent a day painting the castle well it took us all morning.
As our queen was going down the slide she announced that we needed a throne.
We didn't have a throne handy but we did have a free table and chairs.
Added a royal blue tablecloth and a couple of silver goblets and jewels.
As the days passed we added wall paper (to cover up the print on the boxes).
Some drapery for a whimsical feel and picture frames on the walls.
What is a castle without a magic mirror?
A dragon visited but that is for another day.
