My seven year old loves to build things. She can take a cardboard box and spend hours turning it into forts and castles and cars, it seems like the possibilities are endless. So when I saw this great product called Wonder Forts I just had to get her one.
Basically it is a bunch of plastic pieces and connectors that you can use to build structures. Think life size lincoln logs. It includes a booklet full of ideas with directions on things to build (fort, castle, ship, teepee, and more).
We decided to test it out by using it to make a teepee. It was really easy to use and build. A child can easily put the pieces together. The only problem we had was that for the teepee they had to bend a bit and it took two people to hold the structure while you connect the pieces to the top. So some of the larger structures they will probably need help with. However we had a lot of fun building them. Or throw out the directions and just let them make up their own designs.
Throw some blankets over your structure to complete the look. My daughter will sit inside her creations for hours and read, color, and play. Honestly I love it because it gives me a chance to catch up on work.
Perfect gift idea for kiddos that love to build. My seven year old loves STEM, science, building so this was perfect for her. It’s on the top of her Christmas list this year!
