Kids love nooks, nooks for reading, nooks for pretending, nooks for re-grouping (time-outs), nooks for having magical lunches in whimsical places, nooks to bring the outdoors in. Last week in It’s Playtime we had a couple of really nifty nooks and forts submitted. Like these forts? Come chat in the KOA Campfire community about the forts you had and enjoyed when you were a kiddo! . Pretend play camping . Caroline made a reading tent for her kiddos to cozy up with a book. I loved how she brought camping indoors to create a special “place” (reading nook).   My kids love “camping out” with books in a closet under our stairs.   Wish we had a small pop-up – they’d love that! Jena made a massive fort out of old sheets and bungee cords.   Like her, we have been interested in the fort kits which are flying around pinterest.   I love how she created her own fort kit collection of items – and the finish product revolutionizes a living room into an adventure. Who said all tents/forts had to be made out of sheets or pop-ups?   I love what Ellie did with her girls and a box that was destined for the curb – it became a “home” for her gals! . Thanks to all who make our linky a success each week!   And thanks also to my co-hosts for faithfully organizing this each week.   Happy linking!
