Clear an area around a sofa or bed.
An indoor fort is something that everyone can build and enjoy. The materials are available in almost every household.
Things You'll Need
- Party Noisemakers

- Sofa Cushions
- Small Coolers
- Children's Flashlights

Prop sturdy sofa cushions near the sofa or bed to form the walls of the fort. Use chairs, if necessary, to prop up the cushions.
Build the roof by draping sheets over the walls.
Put a smaller pillow on the floor between two upright sofa cushions to construct a window.
Create a door with the simple and elegant drape of a sheet or blanket. Or build a tunnel entrance by tilting cushions together.
Use a party noisemaker for the doorbell.
Use cushions, blankets and cardboard boxes to make furniture.
Tips & Warnings
- To make a split-level fort, use a bed or couch for the upper level and the floor as the lower level. Or, build your fort on a bunk bed.
- A small cooler is a useful item to have in your indoor fort. It's nice to have cool drinks and snacks at your fingertips to offer your guests.
- Make sure your fort does not block halls and passageways.
