Whip Up This Cute Tent for Your Kids!

3 years ago

I have been slowly working on different things that I am planning to put into my little guy's play/motor room that I hope to get together by this summer. One thing I wanted to put in was a tent.

I'm not sure if I plan on putting it as a reading area or more just a play area yet, but I knew I wanted a tent. I used to make tents with sheets all the time when I was little.

I loved having a tent, so why not have one for him, right? So I came across an idea on the blog post by Cakies that was my inspiration for a tent.

I did mine slightly differently than the way they did it, but it helped me with the foundation for starting my tent. First, I needed my supplies. Here is what I needed.

  • (4) 1" x 2" x 48" white wood molding
  • (3) 3/4" x 48" poplar dowels
  • Drill with 3/4" spade bit (thank goodness our neighbor had one)
  • Pencil
  • Measuring tape
  • (1) Twin-sized sheet
  • Sewing machine and thread (very simple sewing, I promise)
