Making a Silk Tepee


Tepees are great fun for outdoor and indoor play!







As we've found out, they also can be an abode for curious pets....

If you are studying Native Americans this year, you can work on creating a more authentic tepee and and incorporate this into lessons.







Learning how to do knots and lashing to create a sturdy frame is wonderful, too!  Look at scouting manuals for help.

Maybe sleep in it overnight?

Play clips, yarn, twine and clothespins are helpful if you want to reuse the silks or fabric.

Oh, such a lovely idea!
I have just created one for my little boy and he loves it!

Thank you so much and I wish you all a wonderful weekend!
