Create a quiet, comfortable space to read or relax with #CMSMatHome: let’s build a fort together!
Gather blankets or sheets, couch cushions or pillows, chairs, cardboard boxes. Throw a blanket or sheet over the chairs, and pad the floor with cushions on pillows, then snuggle in.
Do you have a large cardboard appliance box? Have an adult help you cut out windows or a door. Decorate it with markers or construction paper, then add a blanket or some pillows inside.
- Build a small fort for your cat!
- Build a fort outdoors using large sticks, fallen branches, grasses, and leaves.
- Build a frame for your fort out of branches and cover it with a blanket or sheet.
- Use a fallen tree or log as the base for a fort – add broken fallen branches and other natural materials to form your fort.
