Day 2 Challenge: Build a Fort

DAY 2 BUILD A FORTGrace's House Fort

I have wanted to find a big cardboard box to make a fort with for a while. I decided to just run out to Uhaul and buy a box. Their largest box wasn't as big as I had hoped. I have no spacial reasoning. It ended up only fitting Grace inside, but she loved it. we cut out windows and a door that opened and closed and then spent most of the day coloring and decorating the house. I didn't make it too fancy. Just taped it into a square cylander shape. This was nice because at clean up time I just folded it up and put it behind our china hutch.  Grace played peek a boo with me for a good 5 minutes!  What a blast.

Do your children build forts?  Do you get in on the action? What is your favorite type of fort to build?
