Fort Friday

So I’ve had this old tutorial I found layed out for a while to do in honor of fort Friday. Then earlier this week some pictures popped up in my google reader with almost exactly that tutorial. 

Newspaper play structure from Frugal Family Fun blog. We may still do a step by step tutorial one of these days.

    I've made the newspaper structure (originally from Disney's Family Fun magazine) with my 4-year-old son, as well as with my 9th grade geometry class (hands on for learning polyhedral nets is always a good thing!). It was a hit with the teenagers. My son lost interest pretty fast. I think if I had put butcher paper on the sides, he would have enjoyed it more. Make sure you have a heavy duty stapler on hand when you try it.
