Cubic Frog® sees serious value in creating and nurturing a special space for children to relax and call their own. Forts can also be incredibly useful tools for those kids with sensory processing disorders in order to provide a calming space from overstimulation. And not to mention the process of building a fort is a wonderful exercise in problem solving, instruction following, gross motor skill building, and engineering.

Here’s Cubic Frog® totally fort-tastic list of fort favorites!
