Hello everyone! After work this afternoon, I decided to take Lily to see the swan family living in the brook we live opposite. However, what I thought would be a lovely little visit, ended up in a huge tantrum because Lily wanted to climb into the brook and stroke the swans. Oops! When we got back inside, I needed to find a way to entertain and calm her, so I decided to make a fort. It isn't the most impressive fort you will have ever seen (some of the ones on pinterest are amazing!) but Lily absolutely loved it, and spent ages in there flicking through her books, cuddling her bunny and rag doll, giggling and playing peek-a-boo! She did take a quick break to take a very important phone call, but all in all I think she was pretty impressed. It made for a lovely afternoon activity, and I will definitely be doing it again! Maybe in my 6 weeks off work (school holidays! Yay!) I will build a slightly better one, and perhaps fill it with snacks and colouring in books as well as other toys and books.
Have you ever built a fort? What did you do in yours?
