Imagine a few hours without gadgets, cords or Wi-Fi! Suddenly everyone is free to daydream and just, be a kid! Make-A-Fort building kits allow solo or sibling play to create incredible structures with or without a parent’s help. Or, make it a family affair for the more ambitious builds to make a truly remarkable play space! Each adventure with Make-A-Fort raises the critical thinking, social, and leadership skills of a child.

Durable and Reusable Explorer Kit Will Stand Up To Playtime (And Save The Couch Cushions For You!)

The 2021 Explorer Kit contains the essential components to build simple and fun forts and is intended for ages 4 and up. It’s not just tunnels and forts and castles and these no-screen forts will have kids’ imaginations soaring. Wow!

YOU’LL NEVER HEAR “WE’RE BORED” WHEN YOU  MAKE THEIR DAY WITH MAKE-A-FORT KITSIn stock and ready to ship, Make-A-Forts prices are on a scale of the more you buy, the less you pay per kit. For a limited time, purchase a single kit at $77 or two kits at $137 (that’s $68.50 per kit). Have plenty of floor space to build? Order four kits for $247 and pay just $61.75 per kit.

“I don’t know about you, but my kids love to make forts, and the less “cave ins” the happier they are,” captioned one Utah mom on her Instagram picture of two budding indoor builders concocting a Make-A-Fort castle. “They have prepackaged kits with panels, braces, and foam connectors that each of my kids were able to assemble with no assistance from mom!!!” she emphasized. “They absolutely loved the kits, they are already obsessed and said we definitely need to get another kit so they can build the Crazy House (project) and started drawing their own designs to build in the future. Loved hearing all the giggles, the stories of a dragon trying to enter the castle, and the plans of how to take down the giant!”

Grab the crayons. All the components (except for the foam connectors) in the Explorer Kit can be colored with crayons, markers, or paint. Every component boasts outlines of zany characters ready to be colored. With activities like these, kids will be skipping their screen time except to post a picture or perhaps record a TikTok video.

“We encourage kids to get off their screens and get engaged in creative real-world play. Each of our kits are made from a heavy-duty corrugated cardboard that is strong, durable, and eco-friendly, explains Kent Johnson, of Make-A-Fort, LLC. “We encourage kids off their screens and engaged in creative real-world play. Budding engineers and architects will be mesmerized by endless play building. Once built, they are eager to play inside really big forts — that won’t cave in like couch cushions.”

“A single kit is often enough for a solo play for a preschooler 5 years old or younger,” recommends Johnson. “I suggest two to three kits for an older child (6 years old or older) or for multiple children to allow building really big forts.”

Make-A-Fort points to a handful of reasons parents and grandparents appreciate the open-ended play kits:Make-A-Fort points to a handful of reasons parents and grandparents appreciate the open-ended play kits:
Environmental-friendly; enough space for several children; ignites the artistic imagination of kids and every kit is free from toxic elements and BPA! Most importantly, forts are easy to assemble, tear down, and store away under a bed or in a closet for a new adventure. No more lugging used cardboard boxes to the curb for trash day.

How durable are these forts? Each panel is over six times stronger than typical shipping box cardboard. There’s nothing flimsy here. When ready to order, ask the kids to do the math on how much a family can save when buying two or four kits (or more) at once!
