Create a castle with recycled boxes, Crayola® Washable Sidewalk Paint, and a good imagination. Write a play script for the stage set, too!
Share with the class pictures of castles in the United Kingdom, Germany, France, and other parts of the world. Read stories, including fairy tales, about what happened in castles. Locate castles on maps. Ask students how were they built? And with what materials?
Ask students what their dream castle look like? Break students into small groups and have them sketch a castle with Crayola Colored Pencils and construction paper.
Cut doors and windows in large recycled boxes with Crayola Scissors. Younger students may need adult assistance.
Cover the work area with recycled newspaper. Attach small boxes for turrets or other architectural elements with Crayola School Glue. Cut roll paper to cover the castle or paint the boxes with Crayola Tempera. Air dry.
Decorate the castle with Crayola Sidewalk Paint. Mix colors if you like to create bricks, stones, or wooden beams. Air dry.
Write a script about events that happen in the castle. Who are the main characters? What is the plot? How is it resolved? If possible, create a part for each person in your group.
On a sunny day, take the castle outside to a safe asphalt or concrete area. Use Crayola Washable Sidewalk Paint to paint an imaginary castle sidewalk, garden, or other details. Crayola Washable Sidewalk Paint will wash off with a garden hose or rain, but test a small area to make sure the paint does not stain the surface. Do not use the paint on surfaces less than 6 months old.
After the paint is dry, use the model as the set for the group's play. Practice it several times. Perform the play for classmates or younger students. Wash off the sidewalk paint with a garden hose or rain within 2 weeks.
