Building dens with the DFS Sofa Fort Campaign

Building forts have to be up there with every child’s favorite past time. In fact, whatever the age, you have to admit, building dens and playing in them are pretty fun. So, when DFS sofas got in touch and challenged us to get involved in their sofa fort campaign, how could we refuse. 

We try to make time during our crazy family days to spend actual quality time together. No TV, no homework needing to be done, no tech babysitters, just good old fashioned hanging out time as a family and teaming together to make this very simple sofa fort was just what we needed.

Currently, we have a corner sofa which isn’t the easiest foundation to build a den on, but we did a little thinking and started planning.The children retrieved a few duvet covers while I collected some mini pegs {to hold the sheets in place}, some dining room chairs and of course, some fairy lights. You can’t have a den without fairy lights! It’s like a sofa fort law, don’t you think?

Have you ever tried to assemble a fort with three excited children hovering over your every move? Trying to help in ways children ‘try’ to help! One of those children being a three-year-old who waits for nobody! Sigh. Needless to say, assembling our very simple but beautifully lit sofa fort took a while {glares at the toddler} but we got there in the end.

Now, it’s nothing amazing, but, it’s a sofa den and the kids love it. The children play in it, read it in, play their tablets in there and even ask to eat their meals in there too. So I think it’s safe to say, they love it a lot. The three-year-old is even requesting that it stays up forever!

Thanks to DFS for challenging us to build this sofa fort. We had loads of fun doing it together and we’re really proud of our beautifully simple sofa fort.
