    I Used To Build Blanket Forts With A Drug Dealer

    The same person who taught me how to swim, while taking breaks to weigh cocaine, taught me how to build magical blanket forts. By the end of the night, my mom's boyfriend and I were rainbow glowing pirate prairie dogs with six legs and super strength defending our floating boat...

    Houses Within Bunk Beds... It Is Possible!

    My sister and I used to build these cool little forts out of blankets on my bottom bunk. We would string the blankets through the bars supporting her mattress and make different rooms pretending it was a house. We had a few bedrooms, a living room, and even a fake kitchen and...

    Meeeeeemoriiiiiiiiiies :)

    As a kid, my younger brother and I used to build blanket forts all the time lol. And at some point we were able to build it around an old 13 inch tv. We would basically watch saturday morning cartoons and later play Ghostbusters, ninja turtles, power rangers, or batman. Our fort...

    I Wish I Was In One Now

    I loved doing this as a kid, and sometimes even today I wish I could build myself a cozy little blanket fort and hide away from the world forever.

    A Lost Art

    I used to use blanket forts as a "secret sanctum". My inner safehouse. It was something that I built myself, using my own cleverness, creativity, and resources. I felt like I could do anything in them. Read, watch a movie, listen to music, take a nap. Books seemed more enchanting...

    Even Now :)

    On Monday, my boyfriend and I are going to build a blanket fort. I haven't even thought about it since I was 5. Suddenly, it seems like the best idea in the world. We're going to watch Spiderman and listen to music and chat it up. I really can't wait!!

    Duvet Forts

    My sister and I used to do this all the time. Anywhere anytime. If we saw the potential for a blanket fort somewhere we'd build it! We have really tall dining room chairs that we'd use to put the blankets on, which was the most common place you'd find one of our forts, or we'd...

    How Nostalgic

    I can't believe there are actually people out there with this experience! I used to really love doing this with my sis when I was younger. It's a pity that she has Down's Syndrome - it would've been funner if she hasn't. I had to direct everything, and I don't really...

    Memories

      Now this brings good memories to mind. Both from when I was a child and now with my daughter. She's always asking me to build a cover house and asking me to be the voice of some of her animals she takes into it for us to play with.
