Epic Fort Building — Absolute Best Family Activity for Fall

Fall is the perfect time to be outside in the woods. Mosquitos have died down and the cooler, less humid weather makes the experience perfect.
One of my absolute favorite things to do outside is to build forts. If life allowed it, I could literally build and design one fort non-stop for days on end! No one has ever outlasted me… which has always saddened me because I’d be the one dragged out of the woods… or left alone. I just like creating a simple, yet intricate fort filled with magic potions, pretend food and the whole works! It’s the best activity to experience nature and expand your imagination.
So, of course, I shared the experience with my children and this post features all of our creations!
