A rainy day with nothing to do,

A creative idea comes into view.


Stack the pillows one by one,

Building forts is so much fun.


Balance it all way up high,

You can also make it wide.


Put a blanket at the top.

Be careful so it doesn’t flop.


Gather snacks and books to read,

A flashlight is something else you’ll need.


Don’t forget some toys too.

A secret hide away just for you.


Lounge in there and play all day,

Making forts is super fun – hooray!
