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!
- 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)
- 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.
