I am very excited to be here today at Rainy Day Mum. I cannot wait to share a fun outdoor play idea with all of you.
My girls and I have had big plans to build a teepee this summer. In fact, this idea started way back in the spring when we were trimming our backyard tree. As the branches we were removing came crashing to the ground I realized that they would be perfect for making a teepee. So, I placed them inside our garage and saved them for the perfect summer day. That day finally arrived. As the girls sat and looked at me with their “what are we going to do today” faces, a lightbulb went off…teepee.
First, we pulled out the branches. I guess I thought I kept more than I actually had. There was a feeling of disappointment when I only had 2 BRANCHES. That would never work. Luckily, I had a scrap piece of trim in the back corner of the garage that would work as our third “branch”. We propped the branches together. They nestled in nicely.
