Parents everywhere, rejoice! There is finally a cheap and easy way to create an indoor (or outdoor) fort for your kids! As a parent, the fort struggle is constant. My kids drag sheets and blankets all over my house, sling them over chairs, tables, bar stools and couches, drag their toys to play with underneath - and leave it all for me to clean up! Not a day goes by that they don't ask to play under some sort of structure.
Browsing around Pinterest, you'll find a bazillion options for DIY fort kits for kids, but they all require so much effort. And money. And time. Amazon Prime it is!
Have you found that you're more of an Amazon Prime mom than a Pinterest mom? There's no shame in that. I've found some amazing products on Amazon recently, including a couple of Hideaboo Hideouts that will not only save me money, time and effort, but they'll afford me more opportunities to play with my kids without stressing so much about the mess and clean-up.
My girls and I absolutely love the vintage camper fort and free printables that came with our purchase. We love to camp as a family and can use this fort indoors or out. It will even be perfect for the kids to play in while camping, since we already take a card table with us to eat on.
These easy forts simply slip over your standard card table and require no other effort on your part. There's no sewing involved like some of the DIY fort kits I've seen on the market and they are fairly inexpensive to purchase from Amazon.

These images were made for an standard sheet of paper. I printed them as 8x10's with white borders for my frames.

The idea of using a Lemonade Stand slipcover over a card table is absolutely brilliant. Finally, there is no need to create a vintage-looking wooden lemonade stand like so many of you have already done. This is so easy, inexpensive and can be washed if lemonade spills on it.
