Rome wasn't built in a day and neither was our castle!

Make This Model Medieval Castle (Usborne Cut-Out Models)

As the sayings goes, "Rome wasn't built in a day."  Well, neither was our Medieval Castle that was our big project last year for Rome to the Reformation with My Father's World.  You only need glue, a pair or scissors and some patience to build this replica of a Medieval Castle (there were over 90 pieces to cut out and glue).  We had a lot of fun listening to books on CD while we cut out the pieces and glued them together, it did take us several weeks to finish this intricate castle but it's something we will never forget.  We were so excited to watch it rise up from just pages in a book to this 14th century castle with a moat and a working drawbridge. 
 I highly recommend it if you can find the Usborne book Make this Medieval Castle.  It's currently not showing up as available on Amazon.com but click on the provided link just in case the status changes.




Thanks for reading,
