imaginative play: build more forts

Some of my fondest childhood memories are when my cousins and I used to strip our houses of all of its sheets, chairs, couch cushions, blankets — whatever we could get our hands on — and make elaborate forts.

There were no videogames, no iPods (not even a Walkman just yet), no batteries required… just us, our imaginations and the crazy adventures we drummed up along the way. That’s the genius of being a kid: Your imagination is endless. 

The other day, as my three-year-old son was doing a barrel roll off of my couch and onto a pile of cushions, it hit me: He needs more forts in his life. He has enough “passive” toys to entertain an army of preschoolers. What he needs is more opportunity for imaginative play, that he shapes and creates. And what I need is to unplug, roll up my sleeves and engage with him along the way (secretly, I need more forts too!).

Here’s where it gets interesting.

Apparently, my very awesome friend, Robin Laatz, knew I needed more forts in my life, too. I was on Facebook today and saw this ridiculously cool Fort Kit giveaway in honor of her upcoming KidsFest (aptly tagged: A Celebration of the Imagination!) Robin is a friend, a colleague, a client & I knew she was full of amazing ideas… but I had no idea she was also psychic!

Here’s to less TV, play without “on” switches… and more forts!
