Forts, Movies, & Popcorn


Forts, movies, and popcorn... they kind of go hand-in-hand, wouldn't you say?  Movies are more fun to watch and popcorn is more fun to eat when you do it inside of a fort (at least for a toddler.. but who says it can't be fun for an adult too?).  Now that I've gone from working 5 days a week to 3 days a week - a perfect schedule for this pregnant lady - I get to spend more time playing with my girl.  And I'll take all the one-on-one time I can get with her before baby #2 come along. 

For our fort, we used the tent frame that my husband built for my daughter not too long ago.. but hey, you don't have to be fancy like that.  Get your kid and have them help you drag a couple chairs out to the living room.. drape some extra blankets or sheets over the tops, and plop some pillows on the floor!  It makes some great rainy day.. or just lazy day.. fun!  There tends to be a lot of lazy days going on around this house, since my energy is completely dwindling the closer I get to my due date.

After you get your movie ready to go on the TV, you absolutely cannot forget the popcorn!  We love Pop Secret microwave popcorn.. my go-to is either the movie theater butter or the kettle corn.  This particular day I was feelin' more in a movie theater butter kind of mood.  Who needs to actually go to a movie theater for the popcorn?  Not us!  My child would probably eat a whole bag of it herself if I let her.

What are your favorite things to do with your kiddos on a rainy and/or lazy day?  Do you have any other favorite fort-building-snacks besides Pop Secret popcorn?  I suggest you go visit Pop Secret's Facebook page for a $1 off coupon and stock up on some for those days you might just get all crazy and bust out a fort in the middle of your living room.  ;)
