Fort Magic is the Ultimate Way for Kids to Build a Fort

Welcome Shark Tank and Fort Magic Fans! We LOVE Fort Magic and have been having so much fun! On Monday, April 21, 2014, we’ll have another one to giveaway! In the meantime, see how we like it so much below and subscribe to our newsletter so you don’t miss the giveaway.

Nothing has compared to the Fort Magic kit we recently received from our sponsor. I am so excited to share this ultimate fort building toy with you!

What kid doesn’t absolutely love to build forts? We have found the ultimate way to build a fort!

My kids build all kinds of forts. We have couch forts all the time. They often turn into cars for some reason. You could even build a fort using towels.

We dug into it this awesome fort building kit right away and started building.

It comes with a handy book of ideas that lays out all the pieces needed.

Which makes it much easier to sort through all the 382 pieces there are!

Henry is a great fort builder! He’s right at the age they recommend using Fort Magic, 5.5  years old.

George could do it too, but putting the pieces together tight, with a twist, is kind of tricky for him [kind of like putting Legos together tightly, it takes that little bit of oomph that younger kids don’t quite have the strength in their hands yet].

Henry and George first chose the mansion to build from the instructions book.

This was so great for Henry to look at the picture and build it.

Much like the building with blocks and technology idea I shared, but on a much grander scale, which makes it so much fun! There so much learning going on as they build a fort!

Then it was time for a submarine.

After the boys built the fort, I covered the fort with fabric and sheets [the Fort Magic kit does not include the fabric covers].

Fort Magic has some cool tricks and tips for covering your forts that I found very helpful.

If you want, they even have patterns for each of the fort ideas so you can get a real snug fit.

But we just used old sheets we had that are set aside for painting drop cloths. [Don’t laugh at my sheets!]

    My boys would LOVE this…but you know what the most attractive aspect is for ME? Thinking about how easy the parts are to clean up, put away, and store is a small, neat space like a drawer or a tent bag!!

  2. Dorothy Teel says

    I learned that the Fort Magic set has been tested by independent third party labs approved by the Consumer Products Safety Commission of the United States and that these Fort Magic kits allow a child to use their imagination and skills in building, you have to provide own sheets or covers, but I love the little submarine set up

  3. Kate says

    My girls are always asking me to build a tent, but they never stay. I love how they have more than one fort you can set up and they can do it themselves.
