New Year, New Ideas - Fort Kit

Are you sick of all those electronic toys and gadgets?  I mean even Legos are a bit overrated. What ever happened to the good 'ol days when you had tree houses and you brought home frogs and lizards in your pocket? 

Here is a fun gift/idea for your child or another child. 

Buy a large tote bag and decorate the outside with markers or paint, with the child's name as well as the words "DIY FORT KIT" 

Inside place these items. 

  • Re-purposed household items
    • Old sheets
    • Rope
    • Bungee cords
    • Clothespins
    • Twine
    • Clamps
  • For extra fun add...
    • Flashlight
    • Treasure map
    • Batteries
    • Snacks
    • Compass
The child that receives this gift will have an awesome time building their imagination as well as their fort. 

Thanks to Crystal Stevens (motherearthnews) for this idea. - Rejoicing in the Present
