Couch Fort

When Baby Bear and I first started making and playing in forts, we used bed sheets over the dining room table. It worked well, but after a while Baby Bear started asking for a "house" in the living room. Papa Bear had the idea to use the couch cushions to make a living room fort. We stood the two loveseat cushions on end and then capped them with one of the longer couch cushions for a roof. It was just big enough for Baby Bear and a few of his toys to fit in, but he loved it. Now, pretty much every day Baby Bear asks for his "house" on the couch. It just goes to show, a fort doesn't have to be fancy or even well-built. You can use whatever materials you have around and use your imagination to put them together.

He gathered all his "kids" (multicultural puppets from my teaching days) and a dog into the "house" and then put them to bed. :)
