Build a fancy Indian tent for your kids

Do we want to find a child who would like to have a teepee? I definitely can not do that. Instead of wanting to stop it all the time, you could create the conditions for it at home. So the little one will let off steam at home and the walks could be really relaxed.

Do you want to know how to create a tepee?

What you need:

  • 6 wooden poles
  • drilling machine
  • Hot glue gun
  • Some jute and material with which you can cover everything

Measure about 30 centimeters from the ground and determine the middle of the board.

Now make a hole in the appropriate places

So you will be sure of thatss the whole thing does not break down when the kids run around it

Now we come to the creative part. You can indeed das Tents always cover with materials from the shop, but there is also an alternative. Surely you have clothes in the wardrobe which you hardly ever use.

The different fabrics and colors make the work even funnier

In the beginning, it's a bit more complicated and elaborate, but in the end it will be worth it. Divide the clothes into strips and start wrapping the construction in the way you used to do with the rope.

Lay the pieces together and secure them with glue

When you reach the middle, you begin to pull the fabrics through the bars. You have to stick to the following order: above, below, above, below. With a biteYou can use wire staplers to secure the fabrics to the poles.
