Letting the kids build a fort out of bed sheets and pillows is a great way to beat the boredom blues…but it also wrecks your living room! Avoid the giant mess and head over to the Magic House this summer to build the Ultimate Fort–at their house! The latest exhibit from the Magic House is so simple, and yet so AWESOME:
The Magic House invited us to check out their new exhibit, Forts and Clubhouses. They’ve stocked an exhibit room in the Children’s Village with all the makings of the perfect fort! Kids will find everything they need to construct a pillow fort: chairs and stools, pillows and sheets…and even large chunks of cardboard. This is probably one of the most silly, most fun, most creative things we’ve done at the Magic House lately!
You can play along with your kids and take fort building to a whole new level! Build a pup tent, a tunnel or a cardboard castle. All it takes is a little imagination! Who knows, when you get home, you might be inspired to gather up all your blankets and do it again!
The sheets have reinforced button holes so they slip easily onto coat hooks screwed into the chairs, making fort construction a snap. Mitch brought a friend of his to the Magic House recently to check out the Ultimate Fort exhibit. The had a blast stacking pillows, stretching sheets and pushing chairs into just the right spot to make their own ultimate fort!
If you’d like to check out the Ultimate Fort exhibit, along with all the other cool things to do at the Magic House this summer, you’re in luck!
