Make a Hideout
There are lots of ways to make a secret place inside and outside. Here are some ideas for making both!
 
WHAT YOU NEED:
• BLANKETS, SHEETS, BEACH TOWELS
• CARDBOARD BOXES
• FLASHLIGHT
• PILLOWS
• SNACKS
• BOOKS FOR READING AND FOR WEIGHT
• PAPER AND MARKERS
• CD PLAYER, iPOD
 
SKILLS:
CRITICAL THINKING CREATIVE INNOVATION
 
 
Inside Hideout Ideas
 
1. The place under the dining room or kitchen table is perfect. So is a basement or attic. Another great place is under your bed or in your closet. Search around and find a perfect location for your hideout.
 
2. Grab some blankets, sheets or beach towels.
 
3. Drape the blankets over a table or chairs to create a “tent” roof and walls. Secure them with heavy books. Make a door to get in and out of.
 
4. Bring inside all the stuff you need. You might want a flashlight, snacks, a soft pillow, books, paper, markers, and music.
 
5.Let the time fly. Maybe even invite a friend for a visit.
 
Want More Fun? Build a Hideout Outside!
Forts can be built out of all kinds of things like cardboard boxes, logs, sticks, piles of leaves—you name it.
 
1. Scope out the perfect place. What about in a tree, under a bush, behind a shed or garage?
 
2. Think about how you will build it and begin to make your hideout.
What about making a window to the sky for stargazing?
 
3. Put your supplies inside. A sleeping bag is a nice addition for this home away from home.
 
Climb inside and enjoy. Don’t forget to tell your folks where you are!
