My boys, like many boys, enjoy throwing things at each other. In addition to the classic pillow fight we have from time to time, I’ve come up with a wide array of what I like to call “safe projectiles
.” We love having “goofball fights!”
We also enjoy reading books and telling stories together. I’ve made a few finger puppet sets to tell stories with (and have more in the works!), as well as my own take on Storytelling Dice
. It is so much fun to hear the stories THEY tell on their own, with just a few prompts from the dice!
This week at Obsessively Stitching I am posting a full week’s worth of tutorials for kids’ play tents. My very favorite (and most BOY) tent is my Army Bunker Tent. It is made to fit over my kitchen table, but still has a peaked roof, as any bunker tent should.
One of the best things about this tent is that it is BIG…
…with plenty of room inside for even a handful of kids to play in.
BUT, when it’s time to put it away, it all fits in this handy little bag — even the roof frame!
Come on over and check out how I made my Army Bunker Tent
— and don’t forget to have a look around at some of my other projects, too!
Thanks so much Care! I love how it packs up. I can’t wait to give this idea a try — and I’m sure my little guy will be thrilled. I’m also very excited to see the other tent tutorials for the rest of the week, what a fantastic idea!
Dana just put together a fun roundup of pictures from readers who’ve made things for the you MADE it pool…I just love her narrative style as she shows us each picture; it’s such a joy to read. And how ’bout this star power? Meg of Sew Liberated shared a adorable pilot’s cap on MADE yesterday that you must not miss. See it all and more over at MADE:
Tomorrow I’ll be posting some online shops that are having special Celebrate the BOY! sales and discounts. If you have one you’d like to share, please email me specific information (that I can copy and paste directly, come on you know I have a 6-month-old so help me out here!) with the subject line “Boy Sales” and I’ll try and get over to take a look.
