Her family’s ultimate pillow fort is so epic, it uses 4 sheets and 2 couches

It’s time for a sad confession: I didn’t make my first pillow fort until I shot this video. In my defense, I didn’t have any siblings until I was 11, so I had no one to build one with.

This ultimate pillow fort is everything I ever wanted. It’s so much easier to make than my child-size teepee, and the whole family can get involved with building it.

So, on a Friday night or a rainy weekend afternoon, make some memories with your kids. Life is short, and this is something they’ll definitely remember.

You will need:

  • A living room! Everyone has one of those, right?
  • 2 king-size sheet sets, preferably camo
  • Disco ball
  • Flashlights
  • Nerf gun + some ammo
  • Twinkly lights
  • Binoculars
  • Signage
  • Snacks and bottled water
  • Games, etc.

Really, let your kids fill their fort with whatever they want. After all, it’s their hideout.
