Before we could plan anything we needed to know if we could get the materials without anyone knowing. We wanted to make sure that everything could be recycled afterwards, so we used all of the waste cardboard we could find from around the office and then hid it in a storeroom. Luckily we managed to not look too suspicious!
After we sourced our materials, we drew up some simple blueprints so we had a good idea of how to join everything together. This also gave us a good indication of how big the castle was actually going be.
After we’d determined the size of the castle, we decided on the details. The first thing we decided on was the bricks. Without bricks the walls would have looked flat (and too much like cardboard) so we decided that bricks were an absolute must. We swiftly calculated the amount of bricks we would need: roughly 500. Then we decided on flags, because every castle has to fly a flag!
