"Forts!," the two-week pop-up exhibit, returns to the Museum of Life and Science March 1-19. Families are invited to get creative, work together and use everyday materials to build tunnels, tents and unique hiding spots.
The exhibit features specially designed sheets with large connecting loops that will allow little ones to participate. Hooks and other connecting tools will also be available for the building process.
Guests will have 2,000-square-feet of space for their creations.
The exhibit also includes a dedicated area that is ideal for guests ages 5 and younger. Young builders can design a felt wall house, and create 3-D structures using a light table and magnetic tiles.
New for 2017: Continue the design fun at home with a creative building kit, available for purchase from Elements Museum Store. The handmade Fort Kit features a backpack stuffed with fort essentials including sheets, clips and rope for building fun on the go. Or choose the Crazy Forts kit, which includes 69 child-safe toggles and connecting rods. Just add your own blanket or sheet to create a unique play space powered by your child's imagination.
The "Forts!" exhibit is free with museum admission. Please note that the museum will be closed Monday, March 6. For more information, visit lifeandscience.org.
