Blanket Forts for Grown-up Kids

Remember how fun it was to build blanket forts? Just because you’re a grown-up doesn’t mean you have to let go of childlike fun. And what’s best is that now you get to have wine too!

An activity for a night in, build your own blanket fort using authentically handcrafted blankets and pillows… because while Winnie the Pooh bedsheets may have been a great fort-building material way back when, we are grown-ups, after all. The style of the blankets is how you can tell the kid blanket-forts from the grown-up ones.

Build it around your bed, if you want.

An amateur mistake of the kid-blanket-fort-builders is to construct an impressive structure from couch cushions and sheets, only to go inside and find it terribly uncomfortable. But you’re older now, you know better. Plan ahead by building your fort around a mattress on the floor, or even around your actual bed. That way, you’re guaranteed ultimate comfort and coziness inside the fort, and if you fall asleep in there, it does not matter. How-to Build your own Fair Trade Blanket Forts, DIY

Here are some great ways to use your blanket fort:

1.  Watch a movie. On your laptop is fine.
2.  Eat some snacks. Wine is good too—because you’re a grown-up now and it’s allowed.
3.  Read a book.

4.  Draw a picture. From your imagination, or something you see inside the fort.
5.  Snuggle up with your pet or favorite person. This option can also be incorporated into any of the options listed above.How-to Build your own Fair Trade Blanket Forts, DIY
