Mid-February is right about when the cabin fever starts to set in. If you’re going stir crazy being cooped up indoors this winter, we’ve got a great idea for a fun activity: make a fort! When was the last time you said “yes” to a mess and really let your kids have fun?
Supplies you will need:
- Couch cushions
- Safety pins, clothes pins, or even chip clips
- Sleeping bags
- Rubber bands
Now, get creative! Surround your couch with the chairs and drape the sheets and blankets over the top and sides to make a roof and walls. Line the bottom with cushy sleeping bags and hold it all together with the pins, clips, and rubber bands. Don’t forget the flashlights for inside your fort, along with some pillows, stuffed animals, books, and snacks. If your tv is within eyesight, you can even turn on a fun movie to watch from inside your fort!
