Staying Occupied: Tent Fort

I don’t know a child that doesn’t love the coziness of a fort. Heck, in today’s environment, I wouldn’t mind hiding away in there too.

A traditional fort involves taking every chair, blanket, pillow in your home and turning it into an unstable structure. It’s the hunt and the risk that makes it the most enjoyable.

But this mom wants her chairs, blankets, and pillows for their original uses … and doesn’t want to disassemble a fort every. single. day.

So I took our sunshade and set it up in our office/den. A tent would work really well too or an old card table hiding in the garage that you could toss a sheet over. Think about what you already own and how you can use it differently.

Please share how you are staying occupied and/or the items you would use to create a fort. You can respond to this post or reach out through Social Media.

There are now three summary posts with helpful links: Staying Occupied posts, Helpful Links for Families, and Fitness links to keep you healthy.

Note: This series was created due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the requirement to practice social distancing and stay home as much as possible. I hope that despite all the closures and the crazy grocery store lines, you can still find opportunities to stay calm, enjoy the extra time with your loved ones, organize the areas that need to be addressed, and find something (book, movie, craft) to bring you enthusiasm. Choose to be as balanced as possible and stay healthy.
