My kids have my building genes. And because they don’t have access to my tools, they improvise; using blankets, sheets and any heavy items that might keep things in place.
I couldn’t figure out why it was taking Hunter so long the other morning to get dressed for school. I went to his room to inspire him to move faster and I found this:
He had turned his closet into a fort, which made it difficult to gather clothing without damaging his hard work.
Two days later I found this in Bennett’s room:
We’ve got forts in the living room, the playroom and under the piano. I can’t get them to play in the playhouse Bennett got for Christmas two years ago, but they’ll build a fort just about anywhere. I don’t love that every night they seem to be scrambling to find where their pillow is or where their blankets for their bed are but I love their industrial nature!
