Natural wooden poles and natural cotton canvas form the perfect little space to play. It is a great safe place for kids to create fond memories. There are actually many ways a teepee tent for kids can be used and it offers both parent and child many benefits. My kids like to play pretend in theirs for hours.
1. Reading Nook
A kids teepee tent makes an excellent reading nook. It makes it extra fun to get a stack of books and go explore them in their own special space. It can offer an extra layer of fun for kids that love to read or that you are trying to encourage to read.
2. Pretend Play
A kids play house in general offers great opportunity for pretend play and encouraging kids to use their imagination. Kids love to pretend they have their own house and imagine being self-sufficient. In addition, a teepee tent for kids gives them a whole new setting for their pretend play. They can pretend to be be in the Wilderness and practice their survival skills. Kids can pretend to build their shelter or play like they are in the Wild West.
3. Role Play And Social Skills
A teepee tent for kids can inspire role play which helps encourage kids to become more independent and confident in themselves. Kids can role play setting up their play house, hunting and gathering, and preparing meals. By themselves, these activities may fall more under pretend play with with a siblings or friends, they will get to role play and practice their social skills. Kids will learn to share, to set boundaries, to follow rules, to negotiate, and to stand up for themselves.
4. Outdoors Play
The teepee tent for kids can be set up indoors. Additionally, it is also for outdoor use when weather allows. In fact, is a very useful way to move play outdoors. The tent can motivate a child to go outdoors to play and at the same time it can provide shade from the sun or shelter from wind. It can make outdoor play time more appealing to the child and more comfortable for the child. Outdoor play tends to encourage more active physical play at the same time. Kids can play tag and have the teepee be a base where they rest in between their outdoor games. An outdoor teepee provides a fun way to spend summer days!
5. Privacy And Unstructured Play
Yet another use for a kid’s play house is to offer them a space that they feel is their own little retreat from the world. A teepee tent for kids can serve as their own escape- a feel to feel, safe, adventurous, and in control. Whether they use their kids teepee tent to organize their stuffed animals in their own way or to hold secret office meetings with their friends, it is great for kids to have a special place that they feel is just for them. It provides a great base for their unstructured play.
