Fun Things To Do In Your Fort
Posted March 16, 2016 by Fort Magic
Since childhood, forts were the best thing in the world, (besides a warm bowl of macaroni and cheese). Hours would be spent making them perfect, and while the building was a huge part of the fun, the most fun was all the adventures that took place inside. So if you’re finished with your fort building and need a few ideas for what fun things to do in your fort, look no further!
What To Do In A Fort
You spent all day ( or, at least, a couple of hours) putting together the fort of your dreams, so now what? Well, the best choice is to use your imagination to figure out fun stuff to do and how to decorate! Let’s say you used a lot of striped sheets to cover it. Pirates are well-known for striped attire! Pretend you are sailing the seven seas, collecting treasure, and exploring new lands along the way. Maybe you used pastel-colored sheets, so you can be a candy maker who is always in search of new flavors. The possibilities for fun things to do are endless and guarantee hours of entertainment. With the Fort Magic Kit, you’ll be able to change your fort as the story evolves and come up with more fun things to do inside.
1. Let Their Creativity Shine
Kids are very creative in nature. Encourage their creativity even more with fun activities you can do inside the fort. You can play dress up and take photographs while inside, or write and tell stories. You can also start a new craft project or even draw up future ideas. By building with your child, you are setting up a cool area for them to dream up ideas and be inspired. The benefit of it being a fort is that every month you could redesign and re-theme the area, which will help boost your child’s creativity. Plus, setting it up together gives you a wonderful chance to communicate with your child and learn to understand his or her “love language.”
2. Have a Fun Movie Night
Are you trying to figure out what to do in a fort with a friend of your child’s? They are perfect for indoor movie night, and they can fit just about any theme! You can build pirate ships for a pirate-themed movie, a castle for a fairy tale, or a simple tent-shaped one for everything else. So heat up some popcorn, and grab the candy because movie night is not just perfect for kids, it’s an exciting event for the whole family. You can even make this a fun this with pillows lining the fort for extra comfort.
Relax and Have Fun
Whether it be a movie party or a slumber party, or arts and crafts or reading, there are so many things you can do while hanging out inside a fort. Go ahead and have fun in there, it will be a memory you and your family will carry forever! There’s literally no end to what you can do in it. We also have some great couch fort ideas you can check out.
