Today, we are going to look at an amazing thrift store find, at 56 cents this book rocks!!! With all of the interest in building forts with our Fridays deemed as “Fun Fort Fridays” this was not an item to pass up!
The book gives you a little bit of history on fort building and then goes into different types of forts and it even gives you practical tips on how to build them! It even gives you step by step instructions for lashing with photos. The children have been studying the drawing illustrations carefully and making their own plans for spring/summer forts! (The section on winter forts did not provide our friends with any new information. Although, they were pleasantly surprised to see 3 different types of snow forts that we have already experimented with! “Hey, that’s like we did!”)
The indoor fort building has continued to expand, with new materials and techniques almost daily. “Every day is Friday!” (Well, at least in terms of Fun Fort Building!)
