Today We Built A Tepee...

The weather here in Oklahoma has been absolutely amazing this past week. We have been soaking it all in and spending as much time outside as we possibly can. We read books and ate snacks in our little tepee. Jack eventually brought a few of his toys inside to play. There is just something about little spaces that children love!

 Little brother enjoying a banana in the shade. 

We used some bamboo poles that we bought at Wal-Mart in the garden section (only $1.50 for a package of 12) as our basic structure. I pushed them into the ground, tied them together at the top with some rope, draped a fun looking table cloth over the top, and tied it to the sides. Instant tepee!

I would love to someday make a more "permanent" tepee out side like this one from Creek Side Learning or an indoor one like this from The Boo and the Boy.


It was a wonderful time spent together!
What do you like to do on a beautiful spring afternoon?

  3. @Branson I actually used the other poles from the package to make a tepee for my tomato plants to climb on :-)
