Take playtime to a new level with tents and forts that will let kids' imaginations soar! With options perfect for both the indoors and out, your adventurers can have endless hours of entertainment in their home away from home. Take your pick from secret castles, remote hideouts, or teatime canopies. Their iPad games won't even compare . . .
If your kids are climbing walls begging for an outdoor adventure, but time and a budget are keeping you close to home this Summer — invest in a tent or tot-sized teepee that can be used for many nights out under the stars in the backyard. Kick the adventures off with a scavenger hunt through the yard or a "hike" around the neighborhood. Barbecue up some dinner goodies — chili and franks — and nosh on smores before hitting the hay. Then, wake your wee ones with a grilled breakfast when the sun comes up. Since these practical accommodations cost next to nothing, allow your children to invite their friends over to join in on the fun. Consider purchasing a star map for the kiddos to chart constellations and have a storytelling competition.
Whether your kids are playing hide-and-seek or camping out inside, a lil bit of luxury goes a long way. These chi chi teepees are perfect for indoor activities.
The dry clean recommended tents by Lucy and Michael may not be the most practical choice, but they certainly are delicious eye candy. Priced at $320 and available in designs from teddy bear toile to retro rodeo with pine supports, tykes can crawl inside to nap, read or store treasures.
