The girls have been sick this week so I’ve been trying to think of as many fun at home ideas as possible in an attempt to keep us from going crazy. I have such fond memories building blanket forts as a kid and if history repeats itself my girls will too. They love blanket forts like something fierce. The little kid in me was definitely channeled as we went on a hunt to find every possible blanket and pillow to make the perfect hideaway. Although we did it during the day, I got to thinking that a Blanket Fort Family Night would be SO fun and not to mention ridiculously easy and inexpensive.

Once you’ve gathered all the blankets, sheets, and pillows you can possibly find you’re ready to roll. First you’ll need to clear a space in your living room (or wherever you are building your blanket fort). Then let the fort building begin! The best part of blanket forts is that there’s no exact way to build them and you can be super creative with how you put it together. Use chairs or your couch to drape the blankets, clothespins to help secure everything, and toss in some pillows.
