A swing set tent …..
Even though the “B” word wasn’t allowed to say around here: I still hear it out of my chickie’s mouths quite a bit. “I am sooo BOOOORED!”
We have one of those play sets with two swings in the center and a slide at the other end. I thought a swing set tent would be the perfect place they could be bored in.
I always see old and pretty vintage sheets at thrift stores for a few dollars each.
We did manage to alleviate some of that summer “nuthin’ to do.”, and it was a great way to reuse a pile of the old sheets I had laying around.
It was as simple as two straight stitches on my machine where the ends meet. It took 3 full size sheets end to end.
We removed the swings and put them in the shed temporarily.
We tossed it over the top and weighted the bottom with rocks since it was going to be temporary. It wasn’t too windy, so the rocks held well.
We brought over an outdoor carpet from the deck and their little play table and bench inside and they had a little tea party out of the sun in their “girl’s hang out”.
They had a blast and I could hear them having conversations across the yard. My oldest asked if we could sleep out there tonight. Not unless she want’s to get eaten alive by mosquitoes. For now, it’s just for daytime fun.
I think I would like to get them some bead bag chairs for some summer reading.
I might have to put a lounge chair, a book, and grab a mommy drink in there for myself 🙂

How delightful! Love the tent you made! What a wonderful mommy!
Love it, Jen! Probably safer for them without having the sun right on them, too. Love their little table and chairs set.
It’s amazing the fun playing inside a tent creates. Don’t know why it works – but it does….
So cute! There is something magical about a tent – my kids loved to make them when they were younger. I would love something like that, with a comfy chair for reading.
What a great idea, and so cute, too! ;o)

Oh, I remember when I was young throwing quilts over tables to make tents. Loved that cozy feeling when thunderstorms sounded outside.
