Step 1: Supplies

  • Chairs.
  • Blankets.
  • Clips.
  • 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.
