Let your children build Their fort
Help but don’t take over. Let your child’s imagination go! Just help out where needed to keep it safe. A fort can be whatever your child wants: a castle, a home, a cave, a tent, an igloo. The options are limitless. Just like our imagination.
Building forts will encourage your child to
- problem solve
- work together
Your child will gain a sense of pride and ownership and have a fun private place to think, play and hangout. If you’re lucky maybe you’ll be granted entrance to join in on the fun too!
Fun things to add to forts
- string lights
- a sleeping bag
- a picnic lunch
- a secret exit
- secret storage
- a peeking hole
- a periscope
Child made forts are fun places to
- play games
- cool off
- take a nap
- have a sleep over
Encourage your child to start their fort
Gather some blankets and pillows to get the ball rolling and watch your child’s imagination in action.
