Do you remember building forts as a kid? Where was your ultimate fort spot?
Mine was at the dining room table...that was a sweet spot, and the shelter was half-done before I even started. Drape a few blankets off the side and you're good to go. If you chose to expand your fort and create rooms, you could easily do so by draping blankets around the chairs. Sweeeet!
Raise your hand if you've ever been the victim of a heavy book to the head due to a fort mishap!
