A Magical Fort
What to do with an energetic 6 year old Helper Munchkin (with a "boo-boo") in the dead of winter? This idea from Garden Nymph takes the ordinary pillow fort to the next level. Piled with pillows, stuffed animals, and blankets and strung with lights - this secret fort is magical and cozy.
Take a peek inside...if you know the secret password, that is.

We dug out our patio lights. They are easily attached by winding the cord around the table legs and across the center. Tuck the cord into the hook for the extra table leaves to hold it up and out of the way. The glow is magical and sets this pillow fort apart. Supervise while the lights are on, you know I'm Miss Fire Safety now!
Some lunch, a cuddle with the pup, a few games, a movie on the portable DVD...a pretty nice afternoon into the evening.
