Best Brother’s Tree Fort

June 22, 2015 § 4 Comments

Here’s our new Best Brothers Tree Fort! It’s part of #BradWeek because B built this and because it’s perfect for our family (just like B!)

Our idea (and hope) was that if we made it kind of basic, the boys would invent ways to use it. So far, this does seem to be happening. It’s been a rocket ship, a pirate ship and a letter-writing spot, along with the obvious climbing apparatus uses.

Our other idea is that the boys will work with us to invent and design new things we could add or build on. Then we’d do those at a pace that keeps things fresh and allows this thing to grow with them. So far, we’ve had a lot of conversation about what to add next:

Ideas include:

  • Monkey bars
  • Slide and/or sledding hill
  • Somehow incorporate the kiddie pool
  • “Rock” climbing wall
  • Tire swing or other swing
  • Climbing posts
  • Sandbox

We only have time for one or two more “Releases” in 2015 so it will be fun to see what we end up with. (“Improving negotiating skills” has proven to be another added and unexpected benefit of this Best Brothers Tree Fort.)
