Here’s a tip:

Large binder clips are really good for keeping your fort intact.

This one is attached to a chair,

and these two are attached to the deck.

Then you won’t have a kid bugging you every 2 minutes because the blankets and sheets are falling down!

Mine’s been up all day without one malfunction!

Have Fun!

    What a great idea! I totally love this. I definitely would have to try this out with my little sisters. They are fraternal 10 year old twins and they are stuck to the TV and their iPads. I also found this other fort idea at this website, check it out http://bit.ly/11NMhLA It’s great for those rainy days.

    I LOVE this! What an awesome idea. I can remember building forts all the time when I was little. I used to even have my parents take pictures of my awesomeness–and this was LONG before digital prints or saving photos to a computer! I’m going to take your advice and have my four build a fort outside for dinner ASAP! Thanks!
