Blanket forts are fun. I used to make full living room sized forts with all the blankets and chairs in the house during the summer. They were mansions with rooms and everything. My sister and I even figured out how to rig up a phone using one of those old hair dryers with which you would sit down with your hair in a shower cap. The hose would go in one "room" and the business end would go in another and we could communicate through the the dryer. Nice, huh?
Anyway, I had a lot of fun doing this with the kids. Miss Z insisted that it involve her store playhouse (that is the large peak you see on the end) and her puppet stage. Then we had to bring all of our pillows inside and the flashlight lantern and we all had to eat dinner in there. We had to keep it up to show the cousins when they came over the next day. Fun was had by all. This is a definite good idea for a rainy day or any day really.
