IKEA is helping keep the kiddos entertained during quarantine! 🙌
IKEA is well known for their affordable furniture, space-saving products… and now their awesome blanket fort ideas! To help parents at home, IKEA Russia came up with SIX super neat instruction manuals on how to build blanket forts. The best part is that you can use everyday items you have around your house! Thanks IKEA!
Each house is illustrated just like an IKEA manual and comes with an equipment list to get you started.
Check out these fun blanket fort ideas –
Even if you can’t go camping, your kiddos can do it at home! This one uses books, clips, mobile, string lights & more!
Princes and Princesses will love this style! Use chairs, coat hook, clips, string lights, and other supplies to make this fun castle-inspired fort.
For those that like an adventure – or just need a little time away from siblings 😉 You’ll want to use your couch, clips, and a few soft items for this one.
All you need for this basic blanket fort is a table, books, sheet, and clips. Personalize it with a stuffed animal and lantern to create a cozy space for reading or naps.
Kids love these high ceiling forts! If you don’t have the IKEA TJUSIG coat rack, you could grab a few sticks or another coat rack or even a high stool, plus a rope, books, and sheet. Then deck it out with lights and pillows for a fun place to hide away.
Kids can be their favorite animal in this cave! Just add lights, pillows, books & more to a chair.
DIY not your thing? Here are 10 play tents you can get on Amazon!
We used to go outside with blankets and make a tent with the clothes line using clothes pins and sleep out there over night. It was really fun and yes of course that was years ago and our yard was fenced in.
That sounds like a great idea!
This is amazing!
Half the fun is designing it yourself. Idk, maybe I’m old school.
some people have lost their creativity (or never really had it) so this is a great idea to give them some ideas to copy or use as ideas to make their own!
WOW! this is an amazing idea
