50 Kids Forts

Growing up, building forts was always one of my favorite pastimes. My most memorable fort was a ditch I dug at the side of my house that I covered with a sheet of plywood and camouflaged with dirt and desert brush. Laura and her friend loved building blanket forts and had a different type for each day.

Thanks to you we’ve pulled together fifty kids forts that look like a lot of fun and hopefully inspire you to make your own. It’s as simple as taking a sheet and placing it over some chairs of piling up a bunch of pillows. If you need more help here are 5 tips for building the perfect fort.

Jonathan and Christopher Godwin in their play house. A couple have gone into battle against their local council after being told to obtain planning permission – for a children’s play fort in their garden. Dr Janet Barnes, 43, David Godwin, 33, spent £1,200 on the 10ft wooden structure as a Christmas present for sons Christopher, eight, and Jonathan, three. But neighbours have complained that it breaches their privacy because the children can see into their gardens from the top deck. David and Janet, of Bradford-on-Avon, Wilts., have now been forced to submit a retrospective planning application to Wiltshire Council. See swns story SWFORT. 22 June 2010.
