31 Days of Handmade Gifts: Day 20 {Fort Kit}

Welcome to Day 20! You can find the other 31 Days posts here.

Today's gift idea is a fort kit for the imaginative child in your life.  What a great idea!  It would be perfect for almost any child from about 5 to 10 years old. 

The items that you could include in the fort kit are:
  • several flat sheets (I'd say 2 - 4, and work best if you sew strings/ties on the edges to hang the sheets up)
  • rope (to drape sheets over)
  • clothespins (to attach sheets to rope)
  • suction cups (to put on wall to hold up sheet)
  • flashlight
  • large clips ( to attach sheets to whatever is available)
  • any other fort building accessory you can think of!
Saltwater Kids has a great tutorial for making a fort  as well as a tag that you can print for your fort kit bag!  Bloom has another tutorial you can use.  Would you all include anything else in the fort kit?


  1. What a cute idea! I loved making forts out of sheets and our couch cushions when I was little. I think I need to make this for a Christmas gift.

  2. Forts are so fun to make! And even better to read in! :) I'm sure any kid would love it for a gift. Thanks for coming by!


Thank you for taking the time to visit and leave a little note! I really appreciate your comments. They encourage me in ways you probably don't know! Have a blessed day!
