Music Fort: a beautiful DIY haven for your creative side

Welcome to our beautiful Music Fort post! We had so much fun creating a beautiful music fort and then creating music in our fort. I hope that as you read this post, you will enjoy what we did in our fort, you will be inspired to create a fort with your littles and be excited to create unique music with them as well.

Music Fort: a beautiful DIY haven for your creative side

We made several crafts to decorate our fort. We appealed to our creative side in everything, but always kept music at the center of it all. Our fort was outside, in our backyard. We picked a lonely corner that we never really used much. I used some twine to create a bit of a netting a few feet above the ground to be able to hang a tablecloth, which became our roof. We used long dresses in different beautiful fabrics to give us a beautiful bohemian and dreamy background, instead of just a wooden fence. These awesome mini clothes pins were wonderful to help keep everything in place.

This craft was simple. It appealed to the musical side, the creative side AND the kinesthetic side in all of us. My children had so much fun creating patterns with them and moving them to the songs we were singing. To learn how to make this fun and easy craft, go HERE.

Decorative Pinwheel Paper Craft

These pinwheels are beautiful decorations for a bedroom, a party, a homeschool room, but especially for a fort! We used: a pencil for each pinwheel, tacky glue, scrapbooking paper with musical notes and a sticker for the center of each pinwheel. I also used a small terra-cotta pot and small gravel to help hold them up. Read how to make them HERE.

Fun Snack Time Idea

We set up a mahogany tray with a pretty bamboo placemat and a butterfly tea set. We drank water and gluten free versions of vanilla Oreo cookies. Added simple touches like a single pink carnation and our terra-cotta pot with handmade pinwheels to finish it up. It was a simple, beautiful, fun and delicious snack. We loved it.

Musical Instruments

We have a couple of baskets full of musical instruments with a few musical instruments sets and instruments that we have collected during our visits to different countries like Mexico and Brazil. We played songs we knew, we made our own instrumental songs and even made up a couple of lyrics for songs that we love. We enjoyed watching each other unleash so much creativity and joy through our music.

Paper Mache Tambourines

We couldn’t play musical instruments without making our own, of course! We used some of the musical note paper that we printed to tear up pieces to glue on. They made beautiful music and were a great craft to practice fine motor skills and eye-hand coordination. Read on how to make these HERE.
