While it seems a little silly to buy stuff to make a fort it seemed worth it, we don't have stuff lying around our house to make forts with and Nolan seems to like them. So we got a build-a-fort kit. We made a few forts for practice and then invited Nolan's friend over to play.
After the basic square forts were made I started thinking about an igloo type fort. Here it is. Nolan seemed to like it and Anna, his friend, liked collecting everything she could find and putting it inside the igloo.
I think this will be a lot of fun to have, its a little house that folds up easily. The pieces seem to stay together unless you have a toddler pulling on them. At any rate, I think this is a good toy to have, Nolan seems to enjoy being in the forts. And I had a blast building it!
