The blanket fort is totally under-rated! I mean, what could be better than pulling a blanket over a couple of chairs and pretending whatever for hours on end. Well, while entertaining my niece Z this week, I pulled out that old fabulous stand by. Also, I made it somewhat better too. We hauled a blanket, some lawn chairs, and a sheet to the clothes line to make this awesome little place of wonder. Now, I do realize that it does not take much crafting prowess to make a blanket fort/tent but the fact that it kept her outside for hours made it worthy of the post. A few toys, some yummy snacks, and a shady place to pretend... what kid could ask for more? So, please don't let your little crafters dismiss this fun activity, it was the easiest one I pulled out all week.
