Pillows, Forts, and Giggles.

Who would have thought something as simple as a few old throw pillows, a used child’s fold out couch and strategically placed furniture could turn into a hide out that leads to a morning full of giggles! Today Jade discovered the joy of a traditional Pillow Fort! Our Sons discovered that the Futon Chair and our Couch are situated just perfectly that if they lay their old Cars Fold out toddler couch across the top and place our throw pillows inside and to the sides; that it makes for a very fun hiding spot and play house. Jade had often followed her brothers into this fun hide out, but it’s not been until this morning that she really discovered how fun it was!

She played Hide and go seek with Daddy.

Peek-a-Boo with Mommy AND Daddy;

Had Snack time in her own little “house”
and of course enjoyed a comfortable lounge while watching Cartoons thanks to the pillows inside.

All in All; we had a fantastic morning full of giggling, hiding, and surprising each other. All because of a little imagination; a few old pillows and Strategically placed Furniture.

It's amazing the wonderful Magical world of imagination!

We used to get the 4 benches from the dining table and make our fort from them!
