Wacky Forts

Out of the norm fort building materials such as:

  • Patio furniture
  • Folding tables
  • TV trays
  • Tents 
  • Sheets on a clothesline
  • Cardboard boxes
  • Couch cushions
  • Crib mattresses 
  • Sticks
  • Brooms
  • Tension rods

Things to decorate and furnish:

  • Flashlights
  • Stickers
  • Stuffed animals
  • Sleeping bags
  • Snacks

How To:
If your kid(s) are over the tried and true fort building experience, surprise them by setting out fresh materials. The location can be a novelty, too. Maybe let them set it up under the kitchen table, their bedroom, or the backyard. Try not to give them too many directions and just let their imaginations run wild! Consider doling out furnishings, snacks, etc. a little at a time.
