Putting the Pop in Pillow Forts

When was the last time you made a pillow fort for your kids? I’m embarrassed to admit that we have never made one. Well, that was until last night!

How to Make a Poppin Pillow Fort

Honestly, it was rather fun to build even though I’m 40 weeks pregnant. It only takes a few steps to assemble a fort that instantly creates tons of fun and laughter. There’s even a secret step that I will share with you at the end that will make your fort “pop”! Trust me if I can do it while 40 weeks pregnant, anyone can! πŸ˜‰

We started off by selecting the couch sectional as the back wall of the fort and adding wing chairs to the sides for our supporting walls.

Then we grabbed a broom to stick in between the couch cushions to add lift to our fort once we placed the sheets on top.

Next it was time to connect the sheets together with a few clothes pins.

After we had our fort roof in place it was time to add the pizazz to the fort…lots of lights!

Before I could even get the blankets and pillows in place two boys and a pug made there way in the fort and started laughing!

Even though good times had already started, the fort was still missing the secret ingredient…..Popcorn! Everyone got into their jammies, we put in a DVD and then we popped a bowl of Pop Secret Popcorn.
