Playing in a kids fort is such a sweet memory for the little ones. Often the forts can be expensive or hard to make. But our easy as crazy DIY kids fort instructions will have an entire room filled with this fun distraction in very little time. We used yarn and a simple step by step process to create miniature forts your kids will love.

Kids Fort

And since my kids are officially on winter break today, we have the next 3 weeks off together to make all our indoor kids fort dreams a reality!

As much as I adore our lazy breaks from school sometimes the little ones need a bit of focus and distraction when it’s snowy outside and we are all home together. Making these kids forts for the indoors is a fun way to turn a long snowy afternoon of boredom into a fun one at home.

Each of the yarn kids fort projects folds flat which makes them fun for pulling out just when you need them. Make a couple to wrap up for Christmas, or get the supplies on hand and have the kids help to make them over break.

DIY Kids Fort

To make the yarn tied kids fort you will need:

  • 2-3 bunches of yarn per fort – You can use any type of yarn imaginable but isn’t this one the prettiest?
  • A hula hoop for the bottom
  • A small crafting hoop for the top
  • Scissors

How to make a kids fort

Kids Forts Indoor

To make these kids forts for indoors just follow these easy DIY steps.

1. We started by cutting all the string to ensure it was about the same height. You don’t have to do this all at once, but it ends up making the tying super easy.

2. Loop the string around the hula hoop and tie securely.

3. Leave about 3 feet length and tie the other end around the crafting circle.

4. Repeat… repeat… Put on a favorite binge show series and repeat until the fort is made.

5. Once the top circle is filled, finish off the bottom one by tying rope just around it for a comfy fort.

6. Hang the forts from a ceiling and use the most adorable cowhide rug, balloons etc to make the kids forts extra cozy.
