While Playing: 
  • Sit with your child while he/she is designing a castle using "Castle Constructor", and ask questions such as, "How many turrets are you going to add?" or "Why did you choose the stone door and not the wooden door?"
  • Help your child cut out the various patterns for the castle. Then help him/her put the pieces together to complete the castle!
  • After your child has finished his/her castle, design your own castle, and ask your child to help you put it together. You could make this a family activity by encouraging all members of the family to design and construct their own castles.
