How to Make a Pillow Fort and White Chocolate Covered Pop Secret Popcorn

The following post is sponsored by Pop Secret.

Have you ever built a pillow fort inside your house? Some of my sweet childhood memories include making forts in our living room with my sisters. We would turn the dining room chairs around and use the tall backs of them as supports to help hold up all of the sheets and blankets that we could find. 

Pop Secret is encouraging family fun and creating pillow forts. They even have cute flags to download and customize your fort. Extra purchases aren't required for pillow fort construction. Use what you have available. Our sofa cushions are attached, but the whole structure makes a perfect base for our pillow forts.

For the perfect pillow fort, you need plenty of pillows. And Pop Secret popcorn

Add blankets and a few stuffed friends.

And build it! (I think every pillow in the house ended up being used in this #PopSecretForts pillow fort.

Daddy got his own bowl of Pop Secret popcorn.

One year our parents bought us a ping-pong table that stayed in our garage-turned-into multipurpose room. Our favorite use for it was as a roof for forts which had walls of sheets. I love seeing my kids enjoy some of the same things that were special to me in my own childhood. Forts and popcorn!

  7. Pillow forts (or forts of any kind, really) was always something I loved as a kid. i have lots of memories of my siblings and I covering our dinner table with blankets and playing inside with just about every pillow and comforter in the house. I'd still love to build one, even at 20!
