This summer we visited the beautiful Caernarfon castle. We had a great time looking around the castle and The Royal Welch Fusiliers Regimental Museum, which is also inside the castle. The boys both got a lot out of the trip so I wanted to extend the experience with some castle- themed activities afterwards- here are some ideas:

  • Junk modelling/ cardboard creations

Easy and cheap; this is a great way to create small-world scenes at home.Caenarfon Castle

  • Decorate a flag

Neither Big or Little are massive fans of ‘colouring in’ but this went down really well as a simple mark making activity.

  • Dig a moat and build a sandcastle


  • Dress up and role play
