Making a fort has to be one of the most fun things you do during your childhood. Over at meg + andy, Meagan created a great fort kit as a birthday gift, using many items she found at the dollar store. This is a homemade toy that my boys would continue to use over and over again. A fort kit encourages creative play, and is flexible and would work for kids of all ages, and in all kinds of spaces. Win! [super hero fort kit]

To find instructions for making the sheets with ties in this kit, I kind of went down an internet rabbit hole, so here are the resources I found:
