This is the year that award winning Make-A-Fort moves from being an influencer to having kids be the creator. The toymaker built its reputation last year for its knowledge and expertise on durable building structures that are intuitive and irresistible to kids of all ages. The company influenced a new generation of kids to skip the couch cushions and build a more durable and exciting fort. Make-A-Fort launches its Creator Kits for budding builders ready for the next level.
More on Creator Kits from Make-A-Fort:
Oh my! Is that a 12-foot-long shark in the living room? One of many Make-A-Fort challenges is creating a jagged toothed shark bigger than the sofa! Once the shark is constructed from elements of two or more Creator Kits, kids can pretend they are pirates on the open sea wrangling with the Mighty White! If they dare, they can crawl in through the shark’s tale and out the shark’s mouth, being careful not to be snagged by a tooth.
Now that kids seem to be spending more and more hours indoors, take time out for a STEM lesson. Kids might want to build an 11-foot-long Jet; a 6-foot-tall Giraffe or a 4-foot-tall Lemonade Stand with suggestions from Make-A-Fort’s downloadable instructions. Every kit from last year’s Explorer Kit to this year’s Creator Kit is STEM.org authenticated. Start daydreaming of what to construct next at https://www.makeafort.fun. Click Project Tank online and download a detailed PDF that will have Dad insisting on getting down on the floor to play, along with the kids! The simple-to-follow pages show precisely how to build each side of a tank, the base and finally the turret and barrel. After the exuberance of completing this tank build, imagine the battles and strategic meetings in and around the Tank Fort. Perhaps a nerf battle awaits the family before dinner?
With Make-A-Fort, there’s something to erect for every age in the house. Explorer Kit contains the essential components to build simple and fun forts and is intended for ages 4 and up. The 2022 Creator Kit is an add-on to the Explorer Kit that includes new components to build intricate, durable builds for ages 8 and up. This is for youngsters ready to imagine what-could-be beyond tunnels, forts, and castles.
“Projects that require Creator Kits can be quite challenging to build,” explains Kent Johnson, of Make-A-Fort, LLC, “requiring following long sequences of instructions with perhaps two or more people to build. Families should anticipate multiple hours to build. These projects will surely create memories that kids will look back upon years later!”
Every kit arrives in its own carrying case and lays flat. Inside, panels and braces are made from cardboard that is strong, durable, and eco-friendly. Better yet, kits are ready to be colored, turning a STEM lesson into a STEAM one. Check out the toymaker’s January Sale online at https://www.makeafort.fun/
