At 21 months Paige loves blankets. She is obsessed with them but it wasn't always the case. I remember when she would get scared having covers over her head and it being so dark. We tried playing peek a boo when she was younger and she hated it! Now she loves hiding underneath them, playing peek a boo and building little forts. Of course we have to help her with the last one but we don't mind.

With Paige's love of forts and particularly hiding under them we just had to have a go. As Paige is so young I wanted to keep the fort quite simple so used the dining table as a base and it worked perfectly. I wanted to use chairs but thought the table was more stable. I placed some blankets over the top and our fort was ready.
With the added extras of a few teddies and pillows inside to make it a little more comfortable. I think its safe to say that Paige quite enjoyed her blanket fort. We played in there for ages and had a wonderful time. The excitement and joy on Paige's face was amazing to see.
Have you built a blanket fort?
