But seriously, I'm sharing this because I am so in love with it!
See if any of this sound familiar:
Question #1: Do your kids like to build forts?
That's a silly question. All kids like to build forts.
Question #2: Are you tired of them taking over your living room, taking your BEST and HEAVIEST books from the shelves and using them as anchors for blankets that are draped over couches, recliners, and stolen kitchen chairs?
Question #3: Are you tired of said books falling on the floor and getting their spines broken when someone's foot snags on a blanket?
It is safe to say that I have wept over many a book's death due to this terrible practice.
Question #4: Do you love to see kids pretend and use their imaginations?
That is seriously one of my FAVORITE things on earth!
If you have answered "yes" to any of these questions, you MUST read on! I'm about to change your life. And if you answered "no". . . what's up with your weird kids? ;)
Let me introduce you to the gift that outshone all the others this Christmas break: Fort Magic.
Have you ever had those times when you go out on a limb and buy something for Christmas from Amazon that looks great . . . but you really don't know that much about it?
Yeah, me too. I did that this Christmas with crossed fingers. And holy moly, you guys- it has been AMAZING!
I wanted to get a fort building kit for my little guys (that aren't so little). They are 6 and 8, so the little forts for 3 year olds weren't going to make the cut. My kids also desperately want a tree house- but that's not in the cards, so I wanted a MEGA FORT. I searched and searched. But everything seemed too small or too wimpy.
And then, I found Fort Magic.
Now, to be honest, it can be double the price of other sets or more. BUT, it's also twice or three times the SIZE of other sets. It can be set up in a ton of different ways, (think a castle, space ship or a pirate ship), and it can fit several children inside! It's easy enough kids can set it up by themselves (young kids will need help though), it's relatively sturdy, and it has clips that will hold sheets and blankets in place. Your books are safe and your kids won't get frustrated with slipping blankets! (FYI, no coverings are included with the kit. That's the only downer.)
I seriously feel like I won the lottery.
Know what else made me feel like I won the lottery? My kids used it for two weeks straight. Every day. Which meant I couldn't use our library (seriously this thing is huge). . . but I was ok with that.) Now that the newness has worn off, they still use it several times a week.
Hi, I'm Jen! I adore chocolate, I'd rather read than clean my house, and I haven't seen my abs in I-don't-know-how-long. But I love my husband and kids to death and try to Raise The Good within myself and my family by making wise and uplifting media choices and having a deliberate family culture. You are probably doing the same thing. Let's share what works with each other!
