Build a Fort Out of Sheets

Rainy day blues? Invite your child to build an indoor fort out of sheets. Take the activity a step further by adding measurement. Using a tape measure, show your child how to determine the height, length, and width of the fort. Then, ask your child how to use the data you've collected to determine the fort's perimeter and area.
