Building a toy castle

This toy castle was a fun build. My daughter was really into her Duplo block people, and Playmobil that she wanted a castle for them to have a home. The tricky part of the design was to build the columns at each of the corners and to cut triangles to provide a cone type structure. I could have measured out exact triangles with appropriate degrees, but I realized that “eye balling” a triangle can do the same effect.  After putting the castle together with hot glue, the lay out and texture can be simply added on from pictures from the internet. 

A trebuchet was also made in hopes of showing my daughter how a counter weight can be used to propel something in the air. My daughter spent a lot of time playing and adding items to the castle.
