Fridged winter days call for indoor activities. Unfortunately, when you're crammed into an apartment that's no larger than your childhood bedroom, indoor activities require a bit of creativity. Case in point: the infamous indoor fort. Equipped with a laptop for watching movies.
I know to some of you, this may seem silly, but when you've got a restless 2.5 year old literally bouncing off the walls, you'll do just about anything to keep them entertained. Including revisiting your childhood. And so, this post was born.
The secret to building an awesome fort, lies in the stability. To begin building your fort, find 2-3 sturdy object--tall chairs, couches, ect, and use that build your fort roof. Spread the sheets across two objects to build the roof. Secure ends by tying them down. Note: If you want a darker, more cavelike fort, add an additional layer of sheets on the roof.
Next, create a makeshift door by adding another sheet to front of the fort and secure the top two ends. Add a floor to your fort by placing a comfy comforter under the fort. Fortify your fort with fluffy pillows for added comfort.
Once all the hard work is done, add some flair. Use leftover Christmas lights and fluffy pillows. Be sure bring plenty of snack, toys, flashlights, and books inside to keep your little ones entertained.
Basically this is your chance to revisit your childhood and entertain your kiddos at the same time. Two birds. One stone. Enjoy.
When was the last time you built an indoor fort? What type of rainy day activities do you do with your kiddos to keep them busy?
