Children enjoy playing and will on their own incorporate elements of what they have learned at school into their play. Encouraging the child to use their imagination while focusing on some of the lessons they have learned in school is an excellent way to reinforce learning while allowing the child to have a lot of fun. The addition of a child size teepee tent to your backyard or as part of your camping gear guarantees lots of fun as well as an element of re-emphasis of things they have learned in school.
A child size teepee is an opportunity for a child to take what they have learned about Native Americans at school and act it out. A child could pretend to have a fire inside the teepee or go hunt wild buffalo on the plains of the backyard they live in or it simply could be a shelter from the horrible pretend thunderstorm that is going on outside of the teepee. A child size teepee could become a great show and tell piece or as part of a project about Native Americans. Any child who is active in Scouting will also have a great time using teepees as part of projects and crafts with this extracurricular activity.
A child’s teepee is also a great thing for a family to have at the beach. They are easy to setup and offer excellent sun protection in a unique package. If setup early, the inside of the teepee will act as a shelter from the sun and provide an area that is cooler as well by keeping the heat away from the sand. If the child is tired, they can rest in a shaded area and awake from their nap recharged and ready to play. The imagination can run wild in the wilderness of the beach while they hunt, fish and play in and around the teepee tent.
Finally, a teepee for the kids in the backyard can be a great place for them to have a sleep over. If nothing else, the sleep over would be unique. Most of the available children’s teepees will hold 2 or 3 children with ease, if not more. Practicing in a teepee in the backyard can also be a great way to prepare a child for camping out elsewhere. The comfort and safety of home is there if it is needed but they are exposed to sleeping outdoors. This will make a real camping trip later more enjoyable for child and parent alike.
