Build an Epic Pillow Fort with this Printable Fort Kit


For young kiddos with a lot of energy, it can be a challenge to find activities that keep them engaged. While a run around the playground or games in the backyard are a great way for rambunctious kids to have fun, on rainy or cold days, indoor activities make more sense. The problem though is it can be challenging to come up with projects that keep their attention. That’s where the pillow fort idea comes in!

Printable Fort Kit for Indoor Fun

Imagine it’s a rainy afternoon and you’re looking forward to relaxing with a cup of tea. But your kids are feeling the cabin fever. Ug, it can be a struggle to reign in their restless energy.

To help prepare for that rainy day ahead of time, Sleep Advisor created this printable pillow fort kit. It includes instructions that empower kids to learn the basics of creating a pillow fort. The DIY kit even includes signs to let the whole world know who the fort belongs to.

It even includes a pillow fort kit gift tag. Put your kid’s name on it for fun. Or put the name of their friend on it and gift the fun kit as a present the next time they have a birthday party to go to and you don’t know what to get a child under 10.

Make a Pillow Fort: Easy DIY

The kit has the basics. Then you simply put together a few inexpensive sheets and clothespins, and you have the perfect afternoon or evening indoor activity. Or it makes a unique birthday or slumber party present.

I remember making pillow forts as a girl and so when I saw this idea I wanted to share it. And, nope, I’m not being compensated for telling you about it. Hope it makes for some awesome playtime.

What are some other ways to entertain kids indoors if the weather outside isn’t very good? Did you do pillow forts as a kid?

    It’s always fun to build a blanket or sheet fort (we call them ‘cubbies’). I was a bit confused about how it could be printable, but I see it’s printable suggestions or instructions. :)

    Cute! We had bunk beds. We would tuck blankets under the top mattress making a curtain wall around the bottom bunk. It was kind of a tent/bunker. LOL I can still see 5 other little kids crowded in there sometimes. Lots of fun!

      Aw, bunk beds would be fun :D
