Let me tell you… if my parents had the internet, and websites like Pinterest when I was growing up, my forts would have been so much cooler than they were, trust me!
With two little boys that lose interest in stuff quickly, I knew I could rope them in for a couple hours with this project, and it actually is turning into something they don’t want to let out of their sight.
How much did it all cost?
Aren’t those the best projects?
This is perfect for outdoors, or even a rainy day project, and it doesn’t take that long either. The time put in really depends on the amount of detail you want to add.
So what are you going to need?
A cardboard box big enough for your little one to set up shop inside
Tape and Glue (Glue depends on your artistic plans for the box)
String of Christmas Lights
Construction Paper (Depending on if you want to decorate the box)
Markers (Also depending on plans for decorating)
Then you just follow the below steps… all really simple!
When you are done you have a house with ceiling lights, or a bat cave… or whatever their little imagination wants it to be.
