were sent this fabulous kit for the boys to build dens, boats, castles,
virtually whatever their imagination desires!
For mummy maybe even some kind of baby cage could be devised like on
Cougar town if parenting gets too tough!!!
Not that I would ever do that really!
But it just shows how versatile it is for building pretty much anything.
Every time I go to work the boys get excited for hubbie to
make them a den, then they get really animated when I return from work, jumping
out at me from the depths inside! The
EZ-Fort makes it much easier to do now, hubbie only needs add a few blankets
and the boys seem to have plenty of them dotted around! Otherwise he had to use bits from around the
house and I would come home to the sofa cushions propped up around the place,
string tied ingeniously and an assortment of pegs generously scattered around
the place… (Basically I would return to chaos and that’s being kind about it!).
is fairly easy to build, so the children can happily give it a try themselves
and not have to wait for hubbies superior building skills. It also keeps them out of
mischief for a while, because they have so much choice about what direction to
take their building. Even the pieces
double as a telescope, youngest was quite happy just peering through them for a
pack comes with 54 pieces allowing for a sizeable fort for my two boys, which
is quite fortunate as when they squabble you can help them make two mini houses, to enjoy separately and more peacefully!
the weather picks up (we can live in hope!) we have plans to take the creations outside in the garden. It is very versatile product, allowing a lot of freedom in play whilst still helping them develop important skills. It is also quite robust, the tubes have survived well the stresses of the five and under at play!
all fits back into the box at the end of the session too, so storage is not an
issue. I know how important that is
because we once had a toy house in the playroom (hogging a big chunk of the
room and driving me mad in the process!) but with EZ-Fort we can build one, then when they need floor space tidy
it away simply and quickly!
