I used to LOVE building play forts when I was kid, and I've been known to encourage my kids to build forts in their room. Sometimes I regret the mess, but it's so fun!

Now your family's fort-making skills can win your family an Xbox 360!


Via Where the Wild Things Are director Spike Jonze's blog We Love You So and Boooooom, you can enter The Wild Things' Fort Contest!

Just build a cool fort out of sheets or blankets or furniture or an old box or couch cushions or tents or plywood or the baby's playthings or the pool toys you haven't put away or snow (if you have some already) or sticks or anything else you can find, and email them a photo.

For cool fort inspiration and to find out how to enter to win a special edition Xbox 360 for the whole family (let's face it; the prize isn't for the toddler, but they'll enjoy playing in the fort, right?), head on over to We Love You So.

The deadline for submissions is Monday, October 12th.

Do you and your toddlers build forts? What materials do you use?
