Duvet cover tent

I love this photo of a simple kids play tent taken from uktv.co.uk

Very reminiscent of my 70’s/80’s childhood in Pembrokeshire, South Wales, I just loved making den’s in the garden, mud pies with daisy’s on included!

This washing line tent is made using an Ikea duvet cover, I like the vintage floral feel to the fabric design, it could almost be of kids playing in their garden in the 1940’s.

why buy a play tent?

I’ve just found this interesting article about the benefits of play tents and tunnels to a child’s development skills, such as imaginary play helping with speech and brain development, motor skills (for instance, coordinating crawling into a tent whilst holding a large teddy), spacial awareness,  all kinds of stuff… and I just thought they looked pretty (well, mine do!).

read the article for yourself here Fun Educational toys

an exert ‘… crawling is very important for motor and brain development. It teaches cross movements (a higher level of using your arms and legs) and helps the brain hemispheres to learn to interact properly.’
