Shouldn’t every kid have a fort

Sure, I could go to some website and purchase some fort for a few measly hundreds of dollars, but it’s the one thing I learned from my Dad, the best forts are made with the things you already have.

Think of it, all you need are a few blankets, some chairs, a table, or in this case, an $8 lego castle my Mom picked up from a garage sale a few weeks ago, and a clothes line (yes, my sickness is slowly caring on through the family, even got my Dad to shop at the thrift store on half-off Wednesday).

Took a little rearranging of the lego castle (which is/was originally on our back porch) and in about 15 minutes, they had a new fun place to hide out.  Which now that I think of it, seems to be something were doing every summer.

And what do you do in a fort?  Read and relax of course!  Sadly though, this fort will have to be taken down soon (very soon) it is a yucky gloomy day with “isolated thunderstorms”.  Why don’t they just came out and say “Hey! It might rain, or it might not!  Your guess is as good as mine!”  Eh! For the time being, it will be there own private little world.

    I remember building forts inside on raining days with the table and chairs… so much fun! When we moved to the country, my brother and I would make forts in the woods. Loved those times 🙂

    I think it’s just one of those things that everyone has a memory of doing at one point or another. My Dad use to always build us forts in the living room and my brother and I could hide out in there all day long.
