Cereal Box Fort

The weather in Virginia has been frightful, and the kids . . . not so delightful.
Since the weather here has been bone chilling cold, which makes it hard to stay out for long periods of time. We decided it was a great time to pull all of our cereal boxes from the attic and build a cereal box fort. We saw the idea in Family Fun magazine last year, and thought it would be a fun project for a day just like that one.
We used a glue gun to stick the boxes together. The fort has 3 sides and the front opening, plenty of look outs to keep an eye out for the enemy, but no roof yet. It's big enough for both kids to chill out inside.
According to the kids, we have somewhere between 50 and 70 boxes. No we don't eat that much cold cereal for breakfast, my kids usually get a hot, healthy breakfast. We do, however, like to eat it for dessert. YUM!

Love the fort idea!!! The boys are always wanting to make a fort or tent but they are always knocking it down. Looks like yours would be hard to knock down. Looks like you had fun at Wonderworks too!!!
