Rainy Day Fort Building

This post is sponsored by Church & Dwight Co., Inc. All comments and opinions are my own.

I don’t know about you, but when I was a kid, one of my favorite weekend activities was fort building. We would rearrange the furniture, grab all the blankets and pillows from our beds, and make elaborate forts with tunnels and multiple floors and spend our weekend in the imaginary world we built.

My boys love to do the same thing, especially on rainy days like we've had so much lately. We’ve even bought toys and furniture with fort building in mind, but no fort is complete without lots of lots of blankets. The first things my kids grab when it’s time to make forts is all their blankets and sheets. Recently I tried ARM & HAMMER™ Plus Softener Liquid Laundry Detergent from Dollar General on all of our laundry, and our forts are looking better than ever. 

It combines softening, freshening, and cleaning all in one to make my life easier and our laundry even better! I love products that do more than one job so I can save time and focus on fun things instead of taking more time to do household chores, and in this house, laundry always feels like the chore I am always doing, especially when we’ve used all the sheets and bedding on forts.


I love helping my boys build forts, no matter how crazy their ideas and then (when they aren’t too low or small for me to crawl into), joining them on their fun or just snuggling in there with them. Sometimes we make one and have a movie night, and other times we just leave it up and enjoy it for a few days before it all comes tumbling down. The cozy softness of  ARM & HAMMER™ Plus Softener Liquid Laundry Detergent makes me want to just stay in a fort all day. Too bad my kids don’t nap anymore because I can always go for an afternoon nap.


One of Rhetts favorite things to do lately is get everyone to listen to him while he reads us jokes from his joke book. The little boys don’t really all understand them but we all laugh anyways. He’s so shy that he usually won’t read in front of us but he does love reading jokes to everyone.


I ran to Dollar General before I headed out of town a few weeks ago and they have so many great options for great priced summer goods, fort building supplies, and plenty of  ARM & HAMMER™ Plus Softener Liquid Laundry Detergent to stock up on. The floral smell of it just reminds me that summer is coming and I love smelling it throughout the house on laundry day. You can shop for it now at Dollar General and then let me know how you liked it!
