4. Simple Sheet Tent
This one is a callback to our childhoods! The simple sheet tent is quickly and easily assembled with a non-fitted standard bedsheet, and a clothesline or rope tied between two trees. Stake it to the ground, and voila! A beautifully minimalistic fort!

5. Table Fort
The kitchen table quickly morphs into something incredible with some old tablecloths and fabric! Cut a few windows out, a door, and you have a lovely place for the children to go and read, snuggle, nap, play, and anything else they can think of!

6. Cardboard City
Cardboard is vastly underestimated. It can be used for so much more than just shipping stuff from one place to another! You can create amazing playsets with them, mazes, and of course, an awesome fort! Grab some large cardboard boxes, and draw any kind of landscape you and your kids can dream up on them! Now they have a beautiful cityscape to play in on those rainy days!
Tip: If you don’t have large cardboard boxes on hand around the house, head over to your local grocery store, they’re always happy to give their used boxes to those who can use them!
