Pillowfort Chaos

Is anyone in the habit of building indoor forts with their children?  Whenever I'm away, Adam always builds a gigantic pillow/blanket fort in our basement.  He usually gets a little crazy and pins blankets to the walls.  This is not something I'm happy about.  Over March break he built this beauty in the kids' playroom.  No pinning required - only blankets and every single pillow in the house that wasn't sewn down (including couch cushions).

 
The kids go CRAZY over forts, but the reality is there's never much room to play inside.  This is something we need to work on in our fort-building skills.  I always see the cutest handmade tents and forts on Pinterest, but I think some of the fun is in the building of the fort, so we'll keep working to master that.  Plus, we don't really need another item to store in the playroom.


Harrison is at the age now where he just wants to copy the other kids and join in whatever fun is happening - whether he understands or not.  It's pretty hilarious.  He spent most of the time crawling in and out of the fort and chasing the other kids.  Ella was happy to wait until the fort was ready before taking part in the fun...

 
 
...then she crawled inside and wouldn't dare let me take a picture.  This is the best one I could get of Ella inside the fort!  LOL.
 
 
The kids were so happy to have Adam home for the week of March break - especially Harrison, he's a real Daddy's boy.  And yes, he STILL needs a haircut.
 
 
After all the fort fun was had, the kids (and Adam) all climbed inside and, mysteriously, the fort collapsed. 
 
Thanks for reading :D

  1. Thanks for reminding me of the fun the Kerslake kids had building forts out of the couch cushions and many blankets. When we had to purchase a new couch we needed to consider how many cushions there was to use for the fort. So much fun.. Better fort there will never be. Thanks for sharing
