Pull out the crayons, markers, glue and any craft supplies around the house and create an imaginary world.
Includes markers but it's always fun to add your own touch with other items from around the house. Dried foods like beans and pasta perfectly add dimension to your craft.
Boris Schimanski, a well-known German cartoon artist, was trying to keep his kids entertained while he was working. So he drew a castle on a piece of cardboard , cut it out and gave it to them to play. Once he was finished with his project, he noticed that they were still playing with the their creations. They used things around the house and yard to decorate it and played in a world they created. The children expanded the play to include friends. This is how Calafant was launched.
We turned this Pirate Fortress into a North Pole Castle. A little paint and then with some glue added candy pieces, graham crackers and marshmallows. Topped it off with a little cotton and voila!
