Making Castles for Fine Motor Fun

Turn your cereal boxes inside out to "build" castles or towns.  Wonderful for spatial understanding, pencil grasp, ruler control, handling tape and letting the imagination run free.
Be sure to draw windows, guard towers, royal personages.....  We'll attach the separate "buildings" to the exterior of a sturdy fruit crate and then create the castle's courtyard inside.
Just so happens that the 5th graders in this school are studying castles.
