After a week France with plenty sunshine, I am now back in The Netherlands. I am glad to be home, but I have to get used to the cold and gray weather again…So let us go back in the house and make it cozy. My kids used to built tents, in their bedroom, the attic, in the living room, I did’nt mind. With a large sheet or old duvet cover and some clothespins they made great tent homes where they often wanted to sleep in. Of course they dragged with cushions and small tables and here and there it was needed to fasten a line.
Tipi tents are a lot easier to use, it’s unfolding the tent poles, place the tent and that’s it. These Tipi tents are totally hip again and brands bring out special models. So, the sloppy tents with old striped and floral patterns make room for hip Tipi tents which also look very stylish in the children’s room or your living room. They come in uni color, with zigzag, diamonds, retro or Scandinavian style. They are very decorative and it’s also possible to make one yourself if you are a bit handy.
These Tipi Tents are not only nice for older children, even little ones can have fun playing here. Dismantling is easy but of course all the cushions and rugs still must be cleared here. But mom is happy to give a helping hand with that.
