For school-age kids summer means endless days of outside play, water fun, popsicles…. and summer reading! And what better place to snuggle up with a book than in a cozy play tent like this one that Erin from Life in the Dub Lane made for her son? Like Erin suggests, this would also be a great addition to the classroom for all you teachers out there. Your kids will love having their own private escape, and you will love the fact that you saved tons of money!
Forts made out of sheets… zippered play tents…large cardboard boxes… Kids love having their own “secret” hideaways. Christina from 2 Little Hooligans shares at The Girl Creative how she created a special retreat for her little ones using a hula hoop and twin sheets. Christina says this is a beginner project that takes just a couple of hours, and you sure can’t beat the price when store-bought play tents like this cost well over $100. It’s so stinkin’ cute that I want to crawl inside!
