What makes an epic indoor blanket fort? Are there useful materials to use other than blankets, chairs, couch cushions, books and safety pins? What are some of your most memorable forts? I've made quite a few blanket forts myself in my day, so they aren't new to me and I'm very familiar with the basics, but I wanted to get opinions on what really makes a fort epic.
I plan to make a very large fort that will take up our entire living room and have multiple entrances. The fort will be used for an intimate birthday, so I'd like there be an area in the center of the fort where people can congregate and eat cake (don't worry, we won't light any candles inside the fort).
Any ideas or stories?
