Is there anything more magical than a hideaway teepee? I think not.

the boo and the boy

Like the wardrobe to Narnia, in your wee one's eyes a play teepee or tent can be a rocket ship to the stars, an enchanted kingdom for toys, or just a safe and cosy place to hide.


They're also amazingly aesthetically appealing. Who knew a little pyramid of plain or striped cloth could add such luxurious whimsy to a wee room?

Remember this adorable stripy ensemble? You can nab your very own at Little Yoyo Styles. Or are you crafty? Have you made your own teepee? I used to create little cubbies for myself and once pitched an outdoor tent in the back yard then hauled all my teddies outside to sit it in with me.

The baby space preschooler took one look at these and declared he wants a tent too. Of course!


  1. We made one out of garden canes from a discount shop, curtain rings and clothesline rope. The kids helped with every stage on a very rainy day. It is now several years old and has survived lots of kids, sleepovers, funny dads and chickens. We just throw a variety of vintage sheets over it, depending on who is using it. (floral vs planets). It goes in bedroom, lounge room or garden and is huge! Now the newest toddler will inherit it to replace her change table. Best $10 we ever spent!

    have to learn how to deal with money, which requires them actually
    earning some payday loans online after everything, one always wants to return on the place called "home".

  16. Purchasing a play tent is a really straight-forward procedure. The greater part of them are fundamentally the same and you're bound to satisfy your children with whatever tent you get. There are a couple components that you'll need to consider however. Here are a couple of things to consider.

  17. How to make a teepee is an important skill that you must learn if you are someone who loves camping and outdoor adventures. Not quite your regular tent, a teepee can hold fire inside, which is an important feature when camping during cold nights, if you ask us.

  18. Such a great list!!! We are die hard campers. I have 3 boys and they start their camping trips from 4 months old. I know really young. But they have all seriously been amazing experiences.
