We've made the decision to work on stepping away from the electronics and purposefully interacting with our boys more often. We do try to spend a lot of time together as a family but we want to make sure that we are setting aside time specifically for them. They love to talk about what WE used to do as kids. You know, back in the olden days.
Are you ready to see a truly awesome fort structure kit? We are so excited to share this with you today because we love it that much!
A fort kit (in my opinion) is one of the greatest kid gifts ever. You can put as much or as little effort into it as you want and any kid will get hours of fun out of it! I like a fort kit to include
- heavy duty clamps
- binder clips or clothespins
- flashlight or glowsticks
Any extra is bonus! Here are some kits I've found around the web
A superhero fort kit By Hook & Thread
Build a Fort from Bloom
Star Wars fort kit from teehee4two
Fort kit by Meg + Andy
A fort for Brady by Armommy
The Mad Libs are a cute addition from This Enchanting Life
from Saltwater Kids
from Jodi Michelle
from 4 Men 1 Lady
What do you think should be included in a fort kit?
We were recently sent an Easy Playtown Set from Square One Kids to try out for you all. It's a play set made from cardboard. The whole set comes in it's own box which turns into the "mat" and has 3 buildings...

I know all of you love the idea of a utility belt because I got lots of emails about the toddler belt/car holder we posted about a while ago.
You can get instructions from Behind the Hedgerow
I love this DIY Indoor mini S'Mores grill from ManMade
Easy to make with a cedar plank, soufle cup, and a few nuts and bolts! Details at ManMade
Would be fun project for older kids to learn some new tools and fun for younger ones to roast their own marshmallows indoors!
If your kiddo likes camping my mom got my nephew this set for Christmas and all the kids were playing with it. It's REALLY cute - love the "fire" (the fan is a little loud but I didn't notice much with all the other noise going on lol!)

Happy 2013 everyone! Here's to a healthy, happy, active, creative, and fulfilling 2013!
I love this DIY Superhero House from That's My Letter. She build this awesome playhouse with multiple levels and ledges, doorways, escapes, a ramp, a ladder and a dungeon. She used these plans found on Ana White (my fav DIY site)
Such a great idea! Think I'll keep this in mind for gifts too!
