Kid’s Campout and Tent in Nana’s Basement
Fun Kid’s Campout at Nana’s house
It’s close to Christmas and I wanted to create something fun for my grandchildren to do that wouldn’t cost a fortune.
After looking on Pinterest I decided to have a campout and build the littles a tent. You can follow me on Pinterest at NanaHoodRocks
There were tons of great ideas and elaborate tents but I stuck to the basics: four bar stools and a whole bunch of sheets and couch cushions.
I covered my couch cushions with sheets, put the tent in front of the television so we could have a movie and popcorn. I put a stuffed animal in every corner and waited for the grandchildren to come over. I found the star lights on Amazon and they were battery operated and even come with a remote control.
Before the grandchildren got here Bella discovered the tent and decided the cushions and tent were meant for her! I could not convince her to come out! But as soon as the kids came over and crawled in…she came out! Wonder why>
They had popcorn and watched a movie and loved being in the tent. I think they would have liked for me to leave it up all year but it made it hard to get around in the basement. However, it was such a success that we will definitely be doing it again.
Did you ever build tents when you were a child? Do your children or grandchildren like building them?
