How To Build Awesome Forts With Your Kids

It's fort week! I'm posting on social media this week getting fellow moms to build awesome forts with their kids and share the photos. Kids love forts, and what's not to love? A tiny house inside a house! Kid-size! Secret areas where kids can hide. I was crazy for forts when I was a kid and built many an epic blanket-castle along with my 3 siblings when we were growing up. Many times we turned the entire living room into a giant fort. Come to think of it, that must have drove my parents crazy. No matter, as a mom of a 1 and 3 year old, I get to make forts again, which I do almost once a week, especially in the winter when playing outside is less of an option.

Forts don't have to be elaborate or cause a big mess. Here are some simple ideas to get you started with what's around your home.
