Is everybody else bored? Cool, me too.

Yes, as I lose track of the number of weeks we've been in lockdown, boredom is well and truly setting in. No longer do TikTok challenges entice me, I've completed every jigsaw in the house, and I'm started to feel physically sick if any of my friends suggest having another Zoom quiz.

But fear not, because IKEA is here to remind us all of the best way of passing time: building a fort.

Yes, for many of us, we probably haven't built a fort since we were kids and our parents said we could do whatever we wanted to keep ourselves entertained on a rainy day so long as we stay out of mom's way while she was cooking dinner only for her to totally FREAK OUT after she realizes you've used her wedding dress as a sail to your couch cushion pirate ship... no, only me?

Building forts is fun. It evokes memories of the past and forces us to use our imagination and embrace our inner-child.

And in case you need a little guidance, IKEA Russia has revealed their new campaign with an agency called Instinct, which includes a set of instructions on how people can construct tents, castles, forts, and other cool structures weather the pandemic - each one designed like the iconic IKEA instruction manual.

Check out the designs below:

And for the first time ever, people are actually following the instructions - as social media users upload their best efforts, along with the hashtag '#явдомикеикеа' (which roughly translates to "I’m in an IKEA house").

And here are some of our favorites:

I may not be able to celebrate the end of the working week like I used to, but now I know exactly what I'm with my weekend - and it involves a broom, the couch, and an old bedsheet!
