Make a fort


Make a fort

What to do with this activity?

Your two year old will enjoy making a fort or a den indoors. On the next rainy day, help your child make their own fort in one of your rooms. All you need is a couple of chairs or a table covered with a blanket. Look here to see how cosy it can be. They'll stay busy playing make-believe inside, and might even let you in!

  • Why am I doing this?

    Play is one of the main ways that babies and toddlers learn about the world – it’s also one of the most effective ways they learn. When a child plays they refine learning skills that continue to develop during childhood and beyond.

  • How can I do more?

    As a parent, you are your child’s best playmate so try to spend time every day playing together. As your baby gets older, don’t try to teach them anything during play. They will learn best if they choose what to play and you follow their lead.
