Kids build a fort using large sticks in the woods.

Everyone needs a secret hideout. You can build one in the woods (or your backyard) without using a single nail. Just gather dead branches and lay them over a fallen log to build a lean-to. Or, weave limbs through upright trees to form walls. Your new hideout will offer peace from pesky little brothers, and animals will soon get used to the structure, allowing you to sit quietly inside and watch them up close.
