Good morning! I normally would have already posted by now but I couldn't sign on last night and then today we have been loosing our electricity on and off all morning which has made it very hard to get on the Internet. Oh well, HERE I AM!
Today is Toddler Tuesday and I have an activity that is fun for both kids and adults, or at least Will and I think it is fun. Some of you have mentioned that you live in nice sunny states where you don't have rain often (not the case here) but when you do get rain you aren't sure what activities to do with your kids. Here is a great idea for you...make a fort!
I was selling my fabric gift bags at a bazaar this last weekend and when I came home I found that Will and Little Lou had made this fort. I know, you can hardly see it with the camo blanket on top. ; )
They made this one with a bunch of chairs and then they put pillows inside so they could get comfy and read books in the fort. As you can see it was hard to take pictures of Lou, she was all over the place LOVING IT!
Will wanted me to make sure I mentioned that if you make a fort under a table you should put chairs together in front of it to make a hallway kind of thing with a blanket over it as an entry to the fort. He says that is was his favorite when he was little because he would pretend he was in an igloo. I just love that guy.
Kristi and I used to make forts too, there's just something fun about getting into your own little space you built.
Did you make forts when you were little? What was your favorite kind? Under a table, chairs, something else? Please share your ideas and the memories you have from when you were little, or what you've done with your kids.
PS Yes, we have already decorated for Christmas, I'll be sharing about that another day.
