Do you know the benefits of fort building?

Aside from being tons of fun and exciting to create, forts offer many developmental benefits for your child. Fort building goes a long way in creating our children's sense of independence and allows them the opportunity to fully explore their sense of creativity.

The act of building a fort and being able to then hide out in one acts as a form of stress release for children, offering therapeutic benefits and opportunities for relaxation away from prying eyes.

Scholastic reports that as a child constructs their fort, creative and analytic skills come into play, and cognitive skills are developed through the process of planning and constructing the fort, and of course, if they have friends and siblings engaged in this process, forts can provide a wonderful oasis for socialization.
