The Best Blanket Fort*

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.

The Furniture Market currently have a competition running to win a fabulous £100 Love2Shop voucher!

To enter it couldn't be easier than these simple steps...

1) Build a fort with your children
2) Take a picture
3) Post the picture on social media using the hashtag #BlanketFortComp and tag @MarketFurniture

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?

Thanks for reading,
