When it’s a grey day outside, a blanket fort can be perfect for getting a fun activity going together. Best of all, it’s easy to do with what you already have at home. Here are some fort building ideas putting your sofa, chairs, clothes rack and loads of blankets, cushions and bed linen to creative use.

"This mattress makes any play area more comfortable, not least the floor of blanket forts. It’s also easy to fold and stow away when playtime is over."
Christina Breeze
