I haven't figured this out yet . . .
Are you looking for something to spice up your child’s play area? Do you often find them hiding in places they don’t belong, like closets, bathrooms and pantries? If so, build them a tent. Nothing says I love you to your children like building them a makeshift tent to play in, hide in, and drag stuffed animals into. If you don’t believe me, just see for yourself.
Ok, try to ignore the angry looking two-year old because believe it or not he is so happy under that thing that he threw a fit when it was taken down. My children have a permanent tent situated in their playroom, but their uncle decided to take it to the next level and add a couple of sheets to extend it.
I was in the third or fourth grade when someone from the local museum came and inflated a giant tent that filled the library, which required you to crawl through a tunnel to get to the center. In the center were the constellations and we learned about the stars and heard some stories. I still wish I had my own one of those.
Sheet tents are a great way to use the imagination and make a play area exciting. I don’t know what it is. Something about a tent or fort made out of old sheets makes life more exciting. And it’s free. Well, minus the cost of sheets.
