I had a whole outing planned today, but quite frankly, my senior assistant just wasn’t feeling it.
As you can see, he wanted to build a pillow fort. So, while I thought about dragging him out and pretending to you that it’s nonstop, on the go fun here at the SFM house, I decided to just let him build the fort.
We like the pillow method, which involves shoving some piece of furniture close enough to your wall that you can make a roof with your couch cushions or pillows. You can also try the blanket over the table method, or the blankets across chairs technique. The key here is having something to keep the blankets temporarily together. Ready for the secret? Chip clips. You know-those big ‘ol thingies you use to close the chip bag. I read this somewhere, so don’t credit me, but it’s genius-if you can call a blanket fort building tip genius. I think I just did.
Once you’re done, forts are the ideal place for reading books by flashlight, and you’ll want to bring some blankets and stuffed pals, if you’ve got them.
I promise to be back with a, “real,” post later, but first, I’m off to traffic court. Yep, I wish I could go in the pillow fort instead. Some days are like that.
