We had a delivery of a sink and toilet unit, as we are currently remodeling a house, I know crazy with two children, and the box was massive. Whilst Arthur was at nursery I attacked the box with a marker pen and a Stanley knife and made him a castle with working drawbridge and moat, the trusty blue blanket again!! I kept the shapes cut out for windows to make mini shields and cut out a crown from a cereal box for him to decorate. Also using an old t-shirt of daddies I cut up the sides to create a tabard, then drew a simple picture on the front with fabric pens for a knights outfit, and of course every knight needs a sword so out came more card and some tin foil!!
For more knight themed costume makes, colouring pages etc a wonderful website is activityvillage
