I found these wooden castles at a recent Michaels trip and I was so excited to get started on this project! Now, I thought it would keep them occupied for a looong time, but it was about 30 minutes. It is ok though, because they were so proud of their creations!
The castles were $9.99 but they always have one of those 40% or 50% off coupons that you can find. All you need is some paint and paintbrushes, as well as something to cover the table (I used a roll of kraft paper).
I let the kids pick which colors they would like on their “palette”, which is a small plastic bowl.
My daughter is almost two years old, and even she was very engaged an excited about this project.
I find it best to give each sibling their own brushes and paint from the start, so they know what is theirs and it avoids fighting.
They did an excellent job!
