Step 1: Supplies
- Tall object (in this guide I chose a broom).
Step 2: Create a Canopy
Align the blankets side-by-side (longer sides together) and tie a knot on each end.
Use clips to combine the blankets (as shown).
Step 3: Fort's Foundation
Take some chairs and form the foundation of your fort.
Step 4: Cover Everything
Put the tips of the blankets on the chairs and use clips to secure them (you can also tie them).
Use more blankets to cover the chairs down to the floor.
* Pro Tip: you can also place the fort near closets and drawers and use them instead of chairs (as shown in the picture).
Step 5: Get Your Fort Some Height
Use a tall object at the middle of the fort to give it some height.
Stable object = stable fort (in this guide I chose to be risky).
Step 6: Have Fun!
Play with your friends, tell each other scary stories or just take a nap.
