I looove doll houses, my grandfather made a beautiful 3 story one for us as children. And when I saw that Michael's had blank castle forms available, I just had to try crafting one.
I painted the exterior, stained the wood inside and added "stone" flooring throughout. No castle is complete without a moat! I sewed a simple play mat with a silky blue moat sized so the drawbridge opens over it. The set comes with six plushy figurines: king, queen, princess, prince, knight and squire.
Your little one will have everything they need for their medieval royal adventure!
