DIY Fort Kit

I was looking for gift ideas for my nephew recently and stumbled upon this neat idea for a homemade fort kit.

I came across heaps of great deals for the contents, including the head lamp which I got for half price.  It pays to shop around a bit!

DIY Fort kitMy version contains:

  • Camouflage tarpaulin (you could use a sheet – I just liked the idea of it being able to use it inside and outside)
  • Kids head lamp
  • Spring pegs (these ones open really wide – or you could use clamps)
  • Rope
  • Glow sticks
  • Favourite snacks
  • A cotton bag (something I hung onto after buying some linen)

This website also has some ideas, as well as a neat label which I used too.

I’m hoping it’s going to be a hit.  What little boy doesn’t like making forts?  At the very least, he’ll have some snacks to eat and a headtorch to play with after lights out. 🙂
