We’re back with Fort Friday! I know many of you missed it last week!

If you’re new – here at All for the Boys we celebrate Fridays with some awesome fort inspiration from around the web. Whether made of sheets, cardboard, wood, or sticks, forts are a place we can go to transport our minds to wherever we want to go. You can play, dream, relax, or create in a fort. Everything is better in a fort!

Don’t forget if you participate in Fort Friday (or make a fort any day of the week) and want to share email me at 

Let’s start out this week with YOUR inspiration!

Marco from Frauen und Kinder zuerst sent in this photo of this amazing “underground castle with many traps” Imagine all the surprises you could hide in there

Erika’s boys each made their own forts (I may need to encourage mine to do this more). Apparently the forts were so good one even fell asleep.

An awesome backyard stick fort from The View Finder by tsdg!

Natalie’s boys had fort building on the top of their Spring break to do list. I’d say they checked that one off pretty well!

Here’s a quick up and quick down fort from Amazon

A treehouse trampoline tent would become an oven here in Phoenix but would be super fun in the winter! from Amazon

Have a great weekend!

  1. I wonder why fort building is such a universal thing? I wish I'd taken pictures of all the forts my kids have built over the years.

  2. I love all these pictures! Building forts is such a great creative activity for kids and helps build imagination. One of my favorite memories from my childhood was my parents getting a new fridge and my sister and I build a "house" out of it. We played in it for weeks. @Fatcat I imagine that it's so universal because humans have been building and constructing homes for 1000's of years?? What do you think?

  3. Thanks for including our stick fort again! I really want my boys to make another one, if they do I’ll send a photo your way!!
