The pvc skeleton of a living room fort for the kids. This isn't a tutorial :( but could probably be figured out pretty easily. The best part is that it can all be disassembled and put away when not in use. You could sew sheets together to cover the top and sides. So fun!
I loved small areas and places I could hide and read when I was a kid. This would have been cool, and a lot easier than removing all the hard toys from my toy chest, laying blankets on top of the stuffed animals and closing the top on myself.
instead of Bored sticks Im thinking weekend fun sticks. Every wknd that the kids have nothing to do they pick a stick out of the FUN jar and then we do that thing. for example: go to the museum/ go to the beach/ do a science exper. etc.
