I have seen some beautiful examples of teepees around online, including a gorgeous one you can buy the pattern for at Childhood101 for a grand $5! (This is not an affiiliate link.)
Sewing isn’t really my thing though. I’m more of a “let’s see what we’ve got and throw something together” kind of mum. Using three long sticks, a piece of string and an old sheer curtain, we made our own simple teepee for the backyard!
I enjoyed showing the kids how to correctly lash the three poles together (thanks to my many years in Girl Guides). The structure is easy to move around the backyard which means that the kids can have their tent wherever they like. And it’s just perfect for picnic lunches, stories, and all manner of imaginative games.
Would your kids enjoy a teepee outside?
