Fort Building

crazy-fort-434x322

 

One of my children’s favorite things to do when the weather turns cold (or any time of year for that matter) was to pull out blankets and sheet, really anything to cover a table or bed, and build a fort.  They could play for hours hidden in the depths of this quite, private world.

Open-ended play is making a big comeback, despite all of the awesome technological gadgetry out there to keep little hands and minds captivated. Fort building is a mandatory passage in childhood, and it begins with us!

About welcomebabysl

Welcoming a newborn baby into your home is an overwhelming experience. Like other first-time parents, you are probably experiencing feelings of excitement and anticipation, as well as anxiety and uncertainty. The next few years of your child's life are very critical, and parents play a vital role in promoting healthy growth and development. Because children don’t come with a user’s manual, parents are left to follow their instincts, rely on previous knowledge, research the answers or ask family and friends for advice. It is definitely a learning experience, but not one that has to be done alone. Welcome Baby offers several different levels of support to first-time parents.
