So. . .it is raining, and we can't go outside! So I decided to make a reading fort. This is also my first time making a time lapse video so yeah, there were a couple of practice videos first. Ha!
Anyway, all of YOU can make a reading fort at home too. BUT FIRST ask a grown up for permission and maybe some help!
I am posting two videos here because this was like an engineering challenge! The first time I tried it, I realized that the blanket I chose was too heavy to stay up. So then I had to take it all down and get another sheet. The sheets were lighter so they worked better. I had to use light weight things because I used two closet doors to hold up my corners. If you are using a table or some chairs you can probably use a blanket. Test it out and see what happens!
SAFETY NOTE: Don't use lamps or lights in your fort! In my video there is a lamp but I moved it so it wouldn't get broken! It was not part of the fort! Also, make sure that you don't use bookcases or dressers that might tip over on you. REMEMBER to ask a grown up to help you so it is a safe (and AMAZING) fort.
You may also notice that my cat, Agent Mulder, was helping me build the fort. Knowing him, he'll probably claim the fort as his own by the end of the day and I'll have to make a new one for myself. :)
Have fun building and happy Friday!
