We are back for another year of inspiring imagination and building some amazing forts. My kids would probably live in a fort in the backyard if I let them! I’ve compiled a list of our top ten fort building tools and kits, many of which my kids will use over and over again year round, indoors or out –they are really versatile and you can literally make any configuration you want, and build them anywhere!

4) Crazy Forts
What’s great about the Crazy Forts is that you can purchase light sets that clip right onto the connector pieces!
The Toobeez ultimate life size building set won a Parents’ Choice Preferred Choice Award and has pieces that look a little sturdier than most.
Take the Toobeez to the ultimate with the Teambuilding activity guide. Great for clubs, groups, or just for fun at home!
6) Fort Boards
Fort Boards do not use the tube model like most of the other forts, they use an 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.
You can purchase a variety of Design Cards to go with your Fort Boards. The cardboard panels simply slip right into the connector pieces and help bring your creation to life!
Like the idea of easy forts but don’t want all those tubes around? Fortamajig Connectables is the answer! These connecting fabric panels give kids a new way to build with a locking tab system.
8) Box Creations
The Box Creations Fort Building Kits are an easy way to have the fun of a fort, without having to store a ton of parts. The boards fold down for easy storage, and it features double locking tabs for extra stability and strength. Four markers are included for decorating.
9) Snow and Sand Maker
Take the fun outside this winter and build some snow forts! The Color My Worlds Sand and Snow Coloring Kit comes with a brick maker and fun colors to make neat designs! It is awesome for building walls, igloos, and castles!
10) Blanket Fort
Perhaps the easiest for 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). 🙂
