The Boy and Princess had to make a castle out of cardboard for an assignment during our study of the Middle Ages. They enjoyed the work and the chance to be creative. I got a kick out of seeing what they felt was important to "tell" about castles. This was their first real 'project' (so shoot me). Pretty good for a first and for no parental involvement, don'tcha think?
