It's official! I'm the coolest mom ever. My kids said so. I found these shipping crates on the side of the road and AJ, his friend and I hauled each one of them home, one at a time. They had to weigh 50 pound each, but so worth it for the materials needed for a new fort. I've spent the last couple of days emptying them, pulling nails out and dismantling certain sides.
The result...one genuine fort, good enough for 3 kids & a slew of neighborhood kids
The green is the waterproof lining from the shipping crates
Matt helped reinforced the fort so no crates falls off and smash anyone so hopefully its ready to take all that the kids can give it. Hopefully come spring we'll be adding some improvements, its just your basic fort for now.
