This is Brady peeking around the corner at his new toy…his teepee! He loved it…OK, so maybe not LOVED, but he is getting used to it gradually…
For the main teepee I used a heavy weight 6 foot x 8 foot canvas drop cloth from Lowes and for the casings for the poles I used a grey chevron canvas cloth from Hobby Lobby. When my son was a toddler I made him one of these and painted Native American symbols around the bottom.
I’m still looking for that picture, but haven’t been able to locate one…I remember it going well with the Cowboys and Indians theme at his second birthday party. My niece even dressed up as Pocahontas for the party!
So anyway, I sewed it at home and had Brady’s mom and dad pick up the poles from the Home Depot I think…
This wood is really lightweight so moving the teepee is easy. I didn’t actually buy the dowels, so am not sure what they cost, but from looking online they run around $7.50 to $10 each.
Love the chevron casings for the wood rods!
I finally snapped a pic of Brady in the teepee…it was just for a second, but hey, that counts!
He is getting closer and closer to it! He is sooo cute!!
And reading with daddy in the teepee!
I may be linking to these great parties!
