|The plaid fabric is what I used to make my carry case|
This fort kit includes everything they need to build a fort, such as:
clothes pins $1
glow sticks $1
(all these items were conveniently found at one dollarstore)
bag/ carry case made from on hand materials, but you could just as easily pick up a pillowcase from the same dollarstore)
Total cost $8
Something like this gift is perfect for this particular girl who is very bright and curious. Although the gift recipient this time is a girl I know for certain that many boys would love this gift too (Walter was rather crestfallen that I was giving this kit away instead of it going right into the playroom for him.) I have firmly believed for some time that we are entering an age where our childrens toys play with the child instead of the child playing with the toy. This fort kit does not have that problem.
Enjoy, gentle readers and Happy Thursday!
