6) Fort Boards

Fort Boards do not use the tube or cardboard model like most of the other forts, they use interlocking boards that have connectors to fasten them in a variety of positions. We had a ton of fun building a house out of our Fort Boards! You can see our full review of this product here: Fort Boards Review.

10) Blanket Fort

Perhaps the easiest fort of all, and one my kids love making and playing with ALL THE TIME is the traditional blanket fort. Here it is made easy with panels that connect and weighted anchors to keep the forts in place (nothing worse than hearing the shrill yells of a child who’s fort won’t stay in place). 🙂
