One dad has moved the goal posts in the world of fort making after creating a incredible castle complete with moving drawbridge and rooms for his young son.
Bored of playing snakes and ladders with four-year-old Sebastian, Steve Wilson owner of The Square soft play centre in Somerset, decided to use a load of old sandwich boxes and a lot of tape to create the huge castle.
The soft play centre, which his home links up with, has been closed since the first Cobra meeting so he decided to use the party room for their creation.
Steve said: “We were both getting sick of playing snakes and ladders.
“I had a load of boxes so we started building a fort in the party room, then when my son was picked up to go to his mum’s for the week I forgot about it for a bit. It spent two or three days as a basic square before I went back to it.”
Before going to his mum’s Sebastian asked his dad if the fort could have a roof.
Steve added: “What was going to be a four hour job turned into days of building, I’ll almost be sad to see it demolished – either by Sebastian from playing in it or when we reopen.”
The castle, branded Castle Covid, has a moving drawbridge, corridors inside, a secret hiding spot for Sebastian and turrets he can look out of.
The 52-year-old opened the soft play centre in the former tax office in Wells in 2016.
