This color and construct travel activity will occupy children on their journey. It is inspired by Neuschwanstein Castle, a nineteenth-century Romanesque Revival palace that sits atop a hill overlooking the village of Hohenschwangau in southwest Bavaria, Germany. The castle served as the inspiration for Disneyland’s Sleeping Beauty Castle, making it the perfect place to take your Disney-loving princes and princesses.
This travel art can be done in:
- Hotel rooms
What you will need:
- Printed out Bavarian Castles template
