The Best Teepees and Play Tents

I keep seeing pictures of play tents and teepees online and I can’t help but want to build one for my kids. I remember what it was like to want a little place of my own, someplace where I could read, snuggle, or just hide.

I’m sure my kids would love any of these, which I think are the best teepees and play tents out there.

    There are so many styles out there to choose from but I think my favorite are the plain canvas ones. It sparks my creativity! I guess I need to buy at least a dozen so I can paint and decorate them all to suit my various moods!

    These are SOoooo creative! I had one up for a while for the boys but eventually caved and bought a play tent from for easy storage and the fun ability to add tunnels. The boys gon scampering around in them and even sleep in them at night. Plus once they get bored of those i can put their homemade teepee back up! Great photos!
