Backyard Tee Pee From the Dollar Store
You can get everything you need to build a small teepee from your local dollar store. Grab a few supplies, an eager mini-helper, and your kids will be sitting in their own teepee in no time. This is a great project to complete together in less than an hour. Then they can play in the teepee all day or until the wind/dogs knock it down!
This small teepee is perfect for a summer hangout. Grab a good book and get outside! Or have a tea party in style! I can see tons of pretend play possibilities with this fun backyard teepee. The lantern is solar powered so this will be a great hangout at dusk as well.
You can see this is the perfect size for one child (he is 9). Or a pair of smaller children as well. A small stool would serve for a table if you wanted to have a tea party or some snacks inside your little pretend teepee.
These are the supplied that I used to create my backyard teepee. They are all from my local Dollar General store. You can grab these to mimic mine. Click on over to the blog for the full instructions but really it is super super simple. And the kids can help as well!
