Free, easy and hours of fun!

We had yet another snow day yesterday, so needed to fill some hours without watching TV or bouncing off the walls.
Luckily, we scored a humongous cardboard box that a new living room chair came in. With a few crayons and markers, a knife (with supervision) and a lot of imagination, we turned it into a flower fort! Yes, we were fairies and we lived inside a flower! Check it out.... it's hard to see, but there are flowers, a bird and her nest full of eggs, a secret passage and much more.

Now it's time to make your own fort! Is it a castle? A cottage? A pumpkin or a spaceship? What can you draw on it to make it feel realistic?
If you don't have a box, chairs and blankets work just as well.
