Gkid asked if we could build a cardboard fort. She asked me that on the day I had run across this article in WSJ about why kids build forts and probably need them more than ever right now, so it was rather timely.
She’s VERY happy with it, and calls it “my awesome little cave.” It’s a pentagonal hexecontahedron (the post title is how it came out the first time she tried to say that mouthful!) built from cardboard and mailing tape and decorated with tigers (because that’s what she loves).
@evansd2 helped me with figuring out how to make the bottom flat. I somehow managed to skew the pattern piece slightly at some point in the process, so the edges don’t line up as cleanly as I’d like, but she’s super happy with it, and that’s what counts!

And then back to her usual weirdo self :
It’s now where her iPad lives.
