Be sure to share your tips for keeping your family entertained on your favorite family app.
With a few materials, you can build the best blanket fort around. Before your children get started, take a trip around the house for everything you’ll need. Even pretend playing a shopping trip to a homewares store could make an additional rainy day activity.
There are plenty of blanket fort ideas that will make it the perfect place to hang out. Kids might like having their favorite board game or a book so it feels a little more like ‘home’. It can also be a great idea to bring in some snacks, like granola bars or real fruit gummies.
