My daughter had to make something with recycled stuff for her school. The idea was sort of hers as she wanted to make a castle. She is pretty much into princes, princesses, castles and stuff now so it was not a surprising wish.We collected all sorts of card board boxes and cylinders, plastic containers and glued them up. We also put in a magnetic latch on one of the boxes. Came out pretty well and her teacher tells me she explained the whole process beautifully in class.
Each of the towers has a lid and can hold stationary items .The boxes in the front double up as penstands in this huge DIY stationary set cum storage box in our castle craft!
