  • Tan acrylic paint

  • Using scissors, remove top flaps of box. Cut out squares across the top to look like the top edge of a fortress wall.
  • Pour small amounts of paint into a paper dessert plate. (May want to water down paint to make it go further).
  • Have children dip sponges into paint, then in a row across the bottom of their box, leaving a small space (about 1/4 inch) in between to look like mortar. Paint all four sides. Repeat with the next row, offsetting the bricks. Continue until all walls are complete.
  • Make two holes at the top of each wall about an inch apart.
  • An adult should use a knife to slit all four sides.
  • Reinforce bottom of box with tape if necessary.
  • Starting inside the box, thread a piece of fishing line in and out through each hole.
  • Secure in a corner with a bow.
