DIY Kids' Tents!

I was planning to make a hanging tent for my little girl and her playmates to play store.  I drew out the specs and everything, and settled on using a hula hoop for the upper frame.  

In my daily check-in on FB, I was extremely fortuitous to catch the most recent blog entry of craftzine.com featuring a how-to on making an Army Bunker tent.  A click on the link brought me to a very comprehensive set of tutorials on making tents for little kids I've ever seen!  How lucky is that? 

Obsessively Stitching, has proclaimed February 15-19 as "Tent Week" and with the help of her talented family members, has compiled comprehensive step-by-step instructions on making: (1) a tee-pee; (2) an army bunker tent; (3) a card table tent; and (4) [my absolute favorite] a Hula Hoop Dome Tent.  A family of ingenious crafters! I love it! There's still one more day left, so I'm excited to see what she posts next. 

Here's a snapshot of her site: (with my favorite project):
