|Cutting and taping the cardboard|
After purchasing a new chair and futon pad for our apartment last week, we found ourselves with a small pile of unneeded cardboard and so decided to finally make a castle. If it was me making it, I would have cut battlements on the top of the cardboard, a hole for the door, and called it a day. Lucky for Theo, Dustin is much more hardcore when it comes to creating toys. Theo had expressed his desire for a Japanese style castle, so they set to work.
After a few hours of cutting, taping, paining, and drawing rocks the castle was complete. Between William and Theo, it will probably only take a few weeks before it is a flattened, torn mass of scrap cardboard. I am sure that many samurai battles will be staged there before its inevitable destruction.
