Birthday Gifts Week {Fort Kit}

This is a fun gift that I just had to try out.  I have had a really hard time coming up with something great for boys.  I had seen this idea on pinterest, and I just had to make my own take on it.

The Fort Kit

Fort Kit cr-2

This was so simple to make, I found the sheet already in the bag at Target.  Even better, it was on clearance for $4.

I cut out a red A for child’s first name and added it to the front of the bag.  I used spray adhesive to make it stick.  If I would have had more time, I think I would have stitched it on. 

I was able to re-fold the sheet and add the rest of the goodies to the bag.

Then I made a tag to attach to the bag.

Fort Kit cr-1

Kit includes:

One flat sheet

A flashlight

Big clips

A rope

and some treats to hide out and eat

I found everything except the sheet at the dollar store.

I was hoping that this gift would be well received.  I think the gift was a hit when just an hour later I got this text:

“They love the fort.  Thanks so much for a great gift.”

This picture was included with the text.

I think it was a hit. 

My boys are begging for their own kit.

I am going to be stocking up on sheets for this gift.

What fun ideas do you have for boy’s gifts?
