  • Oh yeah..couch forts, bring in the futon mattresses, extra pillows, blankets, sheets and if you step on the carpet you are burnt by lava or eaten by crocodiles! Yay!

  • yes, but i hate it !
    not because of a mess
    it is because she can never have it perfect enough and it i will result in a meltdown

    (spectrum thing- things have to be in perfect order and pillow/blanket fort- never can be perfect)

  • Yes but they use my bed pillows or they make a fort in DS bunk bed since my couch cushions can't be removed

  • sure! not everyday but on occasion. we make an ocean more often than forts throw all the pillows on the floor & cover them with blankets. then you have to swim thru it. my kiddos love it!

  • Kind of - I let him build dining room forts with sheets an chairs. Our couch doesn't have enough cushions that detach to make a good fort.

  • Definitely. Also bunk bed clubhouses, dining table tents, dining chair caves, and the occasional car or school bus made of pillows arranged on my queen-sized bed.
