How to Make Models of Castle Walls

Updated February 21, 2017

Evidence of castles date back to 1600 B.C. Babylon, according to Castles.org. The castle's main purpose was defence. The castle consists of a curtain wall and crenellated battlements with arrow slits to help protect the defenders of the castle, while a multitude of gates held back the attackers. You can create your own model of a castle on a smaller scale.

Collect at least four cereal boxes to make models for your castle walls. Tape the top flaps shut.

Cover the cereal boxes with paper, securing them with tape or glue. Colour the paper, drawing stones or rocks, to create the castle walls. Be as detailed as you would like. If you wish to be exact, draw even rows of stones with a ruler.

Lay pieces of paper on the table and paste them together until they are twice as long. Roll them into cylinders and tape them together so they don't unroll.

Glue the cereal box walls to the towers with the glue sticks. Arrange the towers so that there is one at each corner.

Tip

This project does not have to end here. You can print as many towers and walls as you like, making the castles as large or in any configuration you desire.
