Kids love forts! It’s true. I have never met a child who doesn’t love small, enclosed spaces where they can hide their stuff, and hide themselves. I remember as a kid begging my parents to let me sleep in the basement, in the small storage room that was full of secret stuff. They let me! I moved my bed and all of my nicknacks to the basement. I remember that first night, feeling so lucky to have a “new room” that was dark and small and fort-ish (emphasis on “ish”). It was an exciting time! Until I heard the scratch, scratch of little teeny paws.
The fort my son and I built is much cheerier, and easy! No moving furniture (or living with mic.
Here’s what you’ll need:
Hammer and nail
Ideally, you need to be able to stretch the string from one point in the room, across to another point. I used a tiny nail at the corner of a window frame. No damage done.
My son spends days in his fort (no nights yet, but soon). We can pack it up, and build it again and again…whenever he’s in the mood to escape ‘the sisters’!
sweet! can you teach me how to do that?!?
I love how you made the fort I will love to make one for my Grandbabies Thank you.
Thank you!!! This is the exact inspiration I needed as I have no couch cushions, extra chairs or ability to reach the vaulted ceiling for building a fort for my 3-year-old. 🙂
