I used to really enjoy building forts. I was still wearing diapers at night because I was having accidents.
For some reason I thought there was some evil force sneaking into my room at night and forcing me to wet the bed. So as a defense against the evil force I would build a fort.
I had a bunkbed, with red metal poles and I would stick blankets in the top bunk and they would hang over the bottom (which apparently would protect me from the evil force lol). I don't know if anyone remembers ZanyBrainy, but they sold this product called glow string. I would take the glow string and tie it all across the room so it created a security seal similarly to a laser detection system.
I just remember this as one of my coolest childhood memories. Fort building was awesome, I think a few times I build some forts out of cardboard boxes.
Did anyone else build forts as a kid?
What kind of forts did you build?
What was special about your forts?
Did you have a defense system?
I'm curious to know your thoughts...
