- The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others. Mahatma Gandhi
Build An Epic Blanket Fort
A blanket fort is fun to play in and easy to build. You can use a bunk bed, dining table, chairs, a flipped-over couch, or other household items. Put blankets over all of the open areas that let light in, or just simply put in a lamp, and bring a flashlight or other safe light source in with you. Tell scary stories with friends late at night (or during the day if the blankets block enough light).
You can even have a sleepover in it. Block extra holes by stuffing cushions, pillows, or crumpled-up blankets in the cracks, but make sure that they can hold up nice and strong. To make it even more fun, try bringing an iPad, a phone, or a tablet in with you. Be safe and have fun in your fort!
