Simple Indoor Activity- Building a Fort

Indoor fort activity for kids

It is funny how the simplest things can be an enormous amount of fun for children.We have done this is the past when my daughter has been has been sick and she adores it. After being trapped indoors for an extended piece of time both my daughter and I get a little stir crazy. This is just one of many inside activities for kids. We decided to make a simple fort out of a blanket and a few chairs. We haven’t done it for awhile, so she was really excited.

This is a simple way to get on the floor and play together

This is a very simple “fort” and I look forward to the years ahead when we will craft more elaborate forts together.

What are your quick and easy activities to keep your children entertained?

    I do this with my daughters a lot too. One of our bedrooms was converted to a playroom. We’ve set up a tent one night and it became a permanent fixture in one corner for storytelling nights. :)
