As a staple of early childhood entertainment, blanket forts are commonly referenced in children's books, such as Corduroy's Sleepover and If You Give a Pig a Party. Parenting books frequently suggest building blanket forts as an activity for parents to participate in with their children. A blanket fort is made by grabbing blankets around the house and setting them up in a room-like matter. Some blanket forts are made for the more cozy experience, including cuddling and more.
