Christmas tree forts

Usually we take our Christmas tree to be chipped after Christmas.

But not any more

Now I take it to school.  And I ask other people to bring their Christmas trees to school.

Christmas trees are fine fort building materials.

We borrowed some big kids to use clippers and cut off the branches.

We had our building materials - the long de-limbed trunk - and all the branches.

The kids set to work.

Our only problem was not enough sticks and branches.

Note for next year - beg, plead and cajole friends for their Christmas trees!



  1. That's a very cool idea! I can imagine the fun that was had:)

    1. We are looking forward to fort building again this week. Maybe a snack in the forts is in order ...
