Summer is for coming and it might be a little bit easier for your kids to stay over the night with their friends, you know, weather is nicer (it doesn’t mean you cannot do it in winter). As a child, one of the most incredible experience for me was to construct my own tent with ordinary items. From castles to fortresses, this is a place to refuge, kids loves crawling in and out of the small structure.
There are many coolest play tents for kids, either DYI or getting from the store, we will show you some options to keep your child entertained for hours:
These tents are unique, children of all ages will love them. Simply connect the balls and sticks and cover the structures with bedsheets to create places where imagination flourish. Depending on age, the kids may need help making the top.
They have different kits, Igloo, House, Castle, Rocket and Tunnel, you just need to choose one. For sure, this will encourage your kid to grab a book and snuggle up, sleeping and reading are okey. For pillow fights, I am not that sure it resists. Check Crazy Fort website for more information (pictures from Crazy Fort website).
DYI your tent
I love this option. It requires little to no materials. A simple wooden hop and a bed sheet and you get a sturdy Teepee tent for your kid and even for your pet. You can customize it to make it more appealing, your creativity is the limit.
Another popular option is using heavy duty cardboard to build a Fort. This is easy to take down and create something completely different, you can have your kid occupied all day long.
You can also play with the space, using it efficiently and your tent will be perceived differently. Who doesn’t love the fresh air? Outdoors tens are also an option. Today, you and your little one can build a cave but tomorrow, it can be a skyscraper.
This popular Sweden store has many ¨build and play¨ options too. With a wide range of bright colorful options, you can build a sheltered spot, a room in a room to have fun with you friends. Just check your budget and your kid preferences, that’s it.
It is demonstrated that tents could provide children with a way to release stress and provide feeling of security. Also, playing with a tent requires a lot of movement, reaching and grabbing, it develops the motor skills so the benefits for your kids to have one are immeasurable, and don´t hesitate to get or build one this summer.
