How do you turn a cold and blustery day with snowflakes dancing on the wind into a fun family time in the house without electronics? Why, you go old school of course and build a sofa fort with the kids of course.
With all of that pretty fringe I felt this throw needed to be turned into a regal fort. That’s why I opted to build the King Couch’s Castle for my little princess and prince to play in.
To make the King Couch’s Castle I changed a few things from the diagram with what we had on hand and what would work best for my kids’ heights.
2 dust mops (or brooms)
1 king size flat sheet
1 lush throw
1 plastic milk crate
To get this fort build underway I placed a chair with its back facing each end of the desk. I then used a dust mop to create the center of my castle towers on each side by placing them along the backs of the chairs.
I used some duct tape to hold the dust mops in place since I was using plastic backed chairs.
Then we placed the sheet over the poles and draped it nicely. After that I used a rubber band around each pole to hold the sheet in place. I then placed the milk crate on top of the desk and sheet. We then draped the Lush throw over the poles. We secured it to the poles with another set of rubber bands and then banded the throw in to other spots to create a fancy, regal drape for our throw. We finished off our interior with big, comfy body pillow and then placed some animals into the castle stable.
The kids are absolutely loving their new fort and spent the morning and evening hanging out in it together.
