a child's tent

One of my projects this summer was to build a teepee for my boy. I've been thinking about it ever since I read this post from one of my favorite blogs - Kelly's makegrowgather.com. She's doing a summer days series all summer long, full of recipes and crafts and lovely summer ideas - so fun.

A couple of weeks ago, I googled child's tent and found this post with instructions on how to make a tent with 6' bamboo poles from the garden center - which I had already bought with the tent in mind! I used an old queen size duvet cover as the fabric (recycling) which I had to cut down.

Our boy loved it - although he tried to add a basement to the tent using dining room chairs!
